And so begins Summertime absurdity

I have no objection if you want to get up an hour earlier. I don’t even object if you think it makes the daylight longer / gives you more sunlight / or whatever silly reasoning you have. Just don’t make me do it too, ‘m kay?

    I assume you are referring to daylight savings time. Invented by industrialist in the late 19th/early 20th century to get more out of the work day. I agree, let’s ditch it.

      I was a bit grumpy, as I always am when I’ve not slept too well, which happens every time the clock changes for a few days after. But yes, it was invented in an era when people all had to get up at the same time, and, like income tax and pub opening hours, slipped in as a “temporary” measure during the First World War.
