Time Says It's Time to Accept DST
It wasn't a hard thing to do, but it does take my body a couple of weeks to adjust to the change in daylight vs. clock time. Once that happens, I'm pretty on board with the change...as silly as it seems.
You see, I grew up in an Indiana that didn't change its clocks. We stayed on one time all year around, and we liked it! We also walked uphill both ways to school barefoot and with no lunch money. We liked that, too.
When the law changed, I fought it because I was a stick in the mud Hoosier. I cried bloody murder about having to change our clocks. I even know some people who, to this day, are always doing conversions in their heads because they REFUSE to change their clocks.
If you're holding on that hard, I'm sorry. Times change...sometimes literally. I've bought in to this, and you can, too. If there is a debate to be had these days, it's does Indiana belong on Eastern or Central time? There are certainly pros and cons to that discussion. I'd love to have Sunday Night Football over an hour earlier on a night where I have to work the next morning, for example.
For me, this issue couldn't be more dead. It doesn't ruffle my feathers, and, since I don't own a drive-in movie theater, it doesn't harm my business. I'm just going with the flow these days. The days of Indiana not moving its clocks are gone like single class high school basketball, Bob Knight, and a full house at the Brickyard 400.
