Grandma Says, "Don't Forget To Set Your Clocks"

There are two guaranteed phone calls I know I will always get from my grandma. The first type of call is if I am getting ready to go to the doctor. Whether it is a simple check-up or getting my wisdom teeth removed, she will always call to remind me to put on a clear pair of underwear. The second type of call is when Daylight Savings Time Begins and Ends. Normally, grandma has no idea what day of the week it is, as a visit to her this past Friday proved to be evident. I took a vacation day and decided to pay good old granny a visit. She was thrown off by the fact that I was there on a Friday, instead of at work, and automatically presumed it to be Saturday or Sunday. We got it cleared up eventually, but I still think she was a little suspicious that Friday was Sunday somehow.

Anyway, I got the bi-annual clock reminder phone call from granny yesterday, and it went a little something like this:

Grandma: Hello?

Me: Hey Grandma.

Grandma: Hello?

Me: Hello?

Grandma: HELLO? HELLO?

Me: Hi!

Grandma: Ohh hi Kev...Kyle.

Me: Hey Grandma.

Grandma: [laughing] I was wondering why I couldn't hear anything. I had the wrong end of the phone held up to me ear.

Me: [Laughing].

Grandma: I just wanted to remind you to set your clocks ahead an hour.

Me: Oh yeah, thanks Grandma. That starts tomorrow though, you know, on Sunday. Today is Saturday.

Grandma: Oh I know, I like to do it the day before though.

Me: Oh I see. Well I won't forget to set my clocks back---

Grandma: No! You have to set them ahead an hour.

Me: Yes yes, that's right. I won't forget to set them ahead an hour!

Grandma: OK well I just wanted to make sure you don't forget.

Me: Haha okay thanks Grandma, have a good day!

Grandma: You too. Thanks! Bye!
