Last night, I fell asleep at about midnight, and this morning, I woke up at about six. I only got about five hours of sleep. How, you may ask, did this happen? Either I lost an hour in the middle of the night due to daylight savings, or I forgot how to count hours because I’m tired because last night was daylight savings.  Either way, something obviously isn’t right. There should always be six hours between midnight and six AM; that’s why it’s called six O’clock.  Next time I make a fool of myself by accidentally miscounting, I will point out that I can’t be expected to remember the order of numbers when even time itself rearranges numbers twice a year.
