Aargh Springing Forward
Ben Franklin was a brilliant guy, but I really wish he had not come up with this idea. I know he probably didn't think that this one idea would cause more problems than what its worth. Some experts say it reduces people getting into car accidents, but I would like to disagree. Maybe it was due to all of us being sleep derived college students, but I had a guy back into me on campus on one springing forward event. He was not paying attention that I was behind him and I have to attribute that to a lack of sleep. I am already a sleep deprived pregnant lady with a young toddler in tow so I bet this is going to feel like a whole week hangover.
Well that is as much rant as I want to give to this subject. I will caution you to be careful out on the roads tomorrow and the following week especially if you have young ones in the car. If you are a coffee drinker, go ahead and get that extra dose of caffeine. I wonder if all the coffee places rejoice when these events happen. Maybe there should be a study about how much coffee is consumed after daylight savings time change. I BET there is an increase!
