Belinda Says Hay: “Eclipse Saving Time”

Belinda Says Hay spokesrabbit blog, March 10, 2024: Eclipse Saving Time

Hello. It's Belinda.

I have a message for the people in charge of the clocks.

"I told you so."

Every six months you tell all the humans to switch the hours "ahead" and "back."

And every six months I write about it in my blog. I talk about all the ways Daylight Saving Time is nonsense.

First of all, you can't move time "to and fro." It's not a toy.

Secondly, when you change the clocks, it throws off my entire schedule.

It's hard to "stay on track" when breakfast is an hour late. Or when your roommate turns on the big light when you're still sleeping.  

No matter how politely and clearly I write about this in my blog nothing changes. Except the time we pretend it is.

And now this. 

That's a globe.

If you're wondering why there's a globe in my blog I know exactly how you feel.

When I walked into the kitchen a few days ago for a little "foraging," I didn't expect to see a big round head at the window.

My eyesight isn't the best. Especially at six o'clock in the morning.

A few hours later, I was back in the kitchen to get a closer look. My roommate was sitting at the dining room table. I guess she noticed me "creeping" toward the globe with my ears straight forward.

Next thing you know she's leaning against the counter tapping the globe with her finger.

"Do you see this Belinda? It's North America."

As I mentioned above I mostly see shapes.

She ran her finger sideways over North America. 

"And this is where the eclipse is going to hit next month. That means the sun will go dark in the middle of the day."

I froze. 

"I took this globe out of the cabinet so I could show it to the kids who live down the street. I was telling them all about the eclipse yesterday."

She spun the globe a few times. Then she walked back to the dining room.

I tried to act casual. It took all of my willpower but I moved my ears back into their normal position.

Then I made my way across the kitchen floor toward the door to the bottom level. I didn't want my roommate to look at me. Not after what she said.

I spent the rest of the day and night under the utility sink.

So let me recap.

First the people in charge of clocks make the humans try to "trick" the sun into rising and setting on a different schedule. 

I keep telling everyone it's a sham but nobody listens to a rabbit.

Now we find out the sun's going to "turn itself off" next month. 

Worst of all we know exactly when and where it's going to happen.

And my roommate thinks the whole thing is some sort of lark. Parading around the neighborhood with a globe. Telling children.  

Well all I can say is can you blame the sun? 

Also "I told you so."

Which I already said but come on. This is very serious.

If anyone knows the people in charge of Daylight Saving Time, please send this blog to them before it's too late.

Whatever that means.
