Maybe not funny “ha-ha,” but funny nonetheless.
Since we are waiting for the majority of our belongings to catch up with us, we’ve been spending a good deal of time visiting the surrounding area and going out to eat. With hubby away, I took the kids (all of them!) to Chattanooga for school supplies and some home necessities. As a surprise I decided to take them to a movie. (We all enjoyed Brave.)
I didn’t know two things:
1. You pass through Georgia to get to Chattanooga from Sewanee.
2. Chattanooga is on Eastern Time.
Fortunately, I have a smart phone by which I keep track of the time, and apparently it can also keep up with which time zone I’m in. (Honestly, it didn’t seem like we were in Target for three hours!) I noticed that our van was an hour behind, but I just figured it was a glitch and had missed an hour; maybe the battery had died at some point. It wasn’t until we were driving back and saw the sign saying we were entering CST that I realized we had spent the afternoon in another zone.
Meh. I was on kid-time, yet we were on time for the movie (thanks to the phone). I was rather surprised at my not-knowing and how little difference it made for the day.
I’ll enjoy the summer time while it lasts.
