Halloween brought little witches and goblins and ghouls to our doors, scaring us with frightening blood stained scars, loose skin hanging from half eaten faces, and now and then even a knife impaling someone’s head.
One child proved to be the most frightening of all by wearing a Mitt Romney mask. I threw a bowlful of candy bars at him and pleaded, “Leave my dog alone!”
Trick or Treat! Gimme gimme gimme candy!!! Ah, the sweet sound of young greed.
Yes, another Halloween come and gone, another visit to the dentist to drill out cavities from ingesting all that sugar and chocolate (well, you’re lucky if there was actually any real chocolate in that stuff.)
And another weekend for everyone to remember to change their clocks.
As I stared at the clock, an old mnemonic came back to me - “Fall back, spring forward.” We “gained” an hour and went into (or is it out of?) daylight savings time.
Daylight savings has always confused me.
Is there some temporal bank that deposits all those saved days? What’s the long-term interest rate on a day saved?
A penny saved, a dollar earned. A day saved, a year earned? And are we now in the real time or the fake time? And what is reality?
