As for me, I’m not springing forward because I never fell back. I feel compelled to explain myself.
When I moved to my new apartment in Covington, Kentucky two years ago, I got me a new alarm clock—a Sony alarm clock. When the thing came with an instruction book, I knew I was in trouble.
I can’t change the time on the clock because I don’t know how. Sometimes I have another friend who helps me, but usually my son’s girlfriend sets the clock. I didn’t ask her to “fall back” last fall because I didn’t want to bug her about something so silly, something that should be easy for a grown man to do.
For the past few months, whenever I would look at that clock in the middle of the night to get the time, I would have to tell myself to “fall back.” Now, I won’t have to tell myself that. Life will get a little easier.
Also, every morning around eleven o’clock, that Sony alarm clock starts beeping. This has been a new development over the past month. I’ve figured out the button to stop the beeping but how the clock got set to that beeping noise, I have no idea.
I think this spring; I’m going to buy me a simple alarm clock that doesn’t need to come with a damn instruction book. I want to get this before it’s time to fall back.
