And yet, on the agreed upon day, we basically pretend it's an hour later by changing all of our counting mechanisms (clocks) and pretty soon it becomes real.
If this works for time, I think there are a lot of other things we should mess with. I hereby declare the following days:
1. Ego savings day. March 25. On this day, let's all agree to hand the boss's daily paycheck to the most underappreciated person in the company, and vice-versa.
2. Youth savings time. October 17. On this day, everyone who is over 50 will be entitled free access to a carnival, amusement park, or water attraction (without the scary killer whales) for a full day of play. They will be allowed to bare their midriffs at any time during that day, as long as they agree to cover them up the rest of the year.
3. Smart savings day. June 4. We all agree not to laugh at any dumb statement made by non-locals of Napa during any wine tasting, restaurant experience, or spa treatment.
4. Fat savings hour. January 16. At the appointed hour, the person who can consume the most calories will be crowned the king of the universe entitled to all of the rights and priviledges of the position.
5. Gravity free day. August 14. On this day, we will all pretend that the laws of gravity no longer apply. We will spend the day standing on our heads for as long as is humanly possible (or we can fly on one of those special planes if we can afford it.)
