The downsides of falling back

I like the extra hour of sleep you get for that one night when you set the clocks back. But, there are a few downsides that last for a few days afterwards:

  • At 11am, you’re ready for lunch.
  • Your young child/dog wakes up an hour earlier than usual.
  • There’s always at least one clock in the house that remains unchanged for entirely too long, throwing you into the occasional time warp.
  • Darkness sets in quite early. Though I, personally, don’t mind it all that much.
  • Baby Jesus hates time change.

Anything else I’m missing?

It’s much cooler since we are missing that hour of daylight.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
