Welcome to another short dialogue with Dialogue Frog. So this week, Sunday is a special day. Do you know why?
It's Daylight Savings Time?
It's Daylight Savings Time. Yay. Or maybe not yay. So, with Daylight Savings Time, in the spring, you move the clock forward one hour.
So, if it's 9 o'clock, on Saturday, it would be 10 o'clock on Sunday. How do you feel about losing an hour?
I don't know. I've always heard that time is money. So I feel like I've lost money.
I-that-I guess that's one idea. It-it gets back to farmers, I think, though, like the whole reason why Daylight Savings Time is still in the U.S. is to conserve daylight hours for those who are in the farming community.
Do you think that we should end Daylight Savings Time?
That's a big question.
Um, no. I feel like it's like trying to implement a huge change. I think we'd get messy, even if it doesn't make sense right now. For some people, then. I think because it's been done that way for a while, it's-it would be easiest to keep it at least for the foreseeable future.
Interesting. All right, well, everybody has different opinions about Daylight Savings Time. This has been another short dialogue with Dialogue Frog.
