I have had an issue of time in my home for the last 18 years – coincidentally, the exact number of years I have been married.
My home is divided into time zones, but not in coordinated lines of one hour intervals like the real world. Each house clock is the epicenter for it’s own random time zone.
I have gotten used to it.
I can travel between house time zones with ease and a calculator.
If I need to know the actual time, I can always leave the house.
And then this happened…
We were in Colorado. 14 hours via SUV from my crazy mixed-up parallel time universe.
I asked Blog-Stedman for the time.
He paused while his eyes rolled upward and his face exhibited signs of heavy calculation.
Oh, what took so long?
Let me explain.
My watch says 21:06. I first have to convert military time to real time making it 9:06. I then have to adjust for the 37 minutes ahead that my watch is set making it 8:29. It is still set on Texas time so I subtract an hour because we are in Colorado which would be 7:29 but then I rounded up because it probably took me at least a minute to figure it out. Oh, and it might not be exactly accurate.
Ummm…you know that rule about me not writing about you in my blog? I am going to have to break it.
