Mrs. Bento's very short stories 20141104

Cat clock and spring forward, fall back

Saturday morning, cloudy with occasional showers. Mrs. Bento woke up with a headache the minute she thought about changing the clock to Standard Time. That meant she had to deal with every time device in the house - the phones, the oven, the clocks, and all the other gadgets that have a time display on. "Can I just put back myself one hour so I don't have to do all this stuff?". Feeling more relax, Mrs. Bento concluded to let herself fall back an hour when she's in the house. "Everybody just check their cell phone for time anyway...and what's more, I don't need to go back to Daylight Saving Time next Spring". Finally she could smile with a sign of relief.
