On the other hand, I get up an hour early because I am addicted
to eating. I have to mesh my activities with other folks, and they
start work at a time that is an hour earlier in the summer. Grocery
stores, Pharmacies, movie theaters -- things that affect my schedule --
all shift. It is moronic to not juet get up in sync with the activities
and schedules that make up my life.
If you think it is nonsensical, I truly feel sorry for you. It
must be lonely out where you are.
And so, yes, I sleep a little less in spring, and get an hour
extra in the fall. Not because I am a slavef to the clock, but I am
not geeky enough to think I live on an island, entire of itself.
