Time And Time Again …

Time to change the clocks again from Standard time to Daylight Savings time, and therein lies my teeny gripe!

According to the dictionary the definitions of standard are: normal, accepted, definitive, and official to name a few. I bring this up because this Sunday, March 8th is the beginning of Daylight Savings Time.

I’m one of those rare people who like it when it gets dark early. I like long evenings when you can be cozy and comfy… not that you can’t do that when it’s light out but it seems somehow more cozy when it’s dark. I know there are some others out there that agree with me but somehow when we mention this preference we get looks of disbelief. I’m not saying that I don’t enjoy an evening stroll, I’m not totally a hermit… I have been known to actually be outside after supper and enjoyed it.

I Googled ‘what do you call someone who likes the dark‘ and  of course got ‘vampire’…but lo and behold there is a word for those of us who do like early darkness better, it’s..

nyctophilia  nyc·to·phil·i·a (nĭk’tə-fĭl’ē-ə)
n.
 A preference for the night or darkness.

Guess I’m a nyctophiliac.

I guess in the scheme of things it doesn’t matter…time is what it is…
