It has come to my attention that this whole province out here in the west, changes its clocks, TWO TIMES A YEAR! And tonight is the night you are suppose to change it.
What's that about? Are they just looking for something to do in fall and spring? Do they get bored with the way the time is every year and think, "Hmm, lets have a go and change it, just to confuse people, and play with the minds of all those people who don't have a clue how to reprogram their VCR or microwave, so they just keep the old time on until next spring when their lives will make sense again, time wise?"
And what will happen to the chickens, how will they know when to lay an egg? Will the egg companies go under because their chickens are confused?
Or the cows, how will they know when it's time to get milked? Confused udders will be exploding across the west. Well, except forÂ SaskatchewanÂ which knows how to treat its cows and chickens I must say.
I don't know, all this change is freaking me out. Â
And I don't have a clue how to change the time on my clock radio.
Maybe I'll just set it to wake me up an hour earlier... or is that an hour later...
OR MAYBE IT'S TIME TO BEGIN A UNITED FRONT AGAINST TIME CHANGE!
I think that if all the Riders fans out here would join me in thisÂ endeavor, we may have critical mass. If we just refuse to change, and lived our lives like they do in Saskatchewan, just maybe we could stop all this madness.Â
Then the cows and chickens would be happy. And the people who don't know how to program their VCR would be happy, and the pastors who are tired of people showing up an hour late for the service would be happy.
And lets face it, in these difficult economic times any level of happiness we can get is a good thing.
