Daylight Savings. Axe Effect.

Sunday night, the clock moves ahead by an hour. Which means, more daylight. Yes, when I get off work, I dont drive around in darkness, but drive around in sun light. I dont need to switch my headlights on. I like it. But this also means, my body clock, which is programmed to be up by 8, now has to be up by 7 (well, its 8, but remember, everythings gone ahead by an hour). And so as things shoud be, I dont get up by 8, but by 9, and I dont reach work by 9, but by 10. And my boss gives me a you ought to be fired look.

Why, cant we have things the way I see them to be.

Last week of October, when we turn our clocks back by an hour at some odd hour on Sunday - why not turn our clocks back by 25 hours at the same odd hour on a Sunday? So what does this mean? We get an extra day off. 2 Saturdays in a row. And the body gets an extra day to adjust to an effective one hour shift back in time (apart from the fact that everyone gets another Saturday night to get drunk).

Now you all are asking me, "How the hell do you account for this extra day Apoorva? How? Will a year have 366 days now?"

No. Peace. Behold.

Come first week of April, instead of turning your clocks ahead by an hour, you turn them ahead by 25 hours. But, this you do on a Thursday nite. So you see whats happening? You entirely skip your Friday at work and end up on Friday night. So you party Friday night and Saturday night and get used to the one hour shift in time.

Viola. Aint I brilliant?

Axe - Recovery. Yes, this very shower gel. Dont try it, unless you like electral. Yup. Remember Electral? That powdered packet we used to get in our childhood, which you mix with water and drink (was it usually after u have gone about puking all over the place?) Axe recovery smells just like Electral. And I made the mistake of buying it (without testing it), so everyday I head to office smelling of Electral.

Anyways, to negate this smell, I use Axe - Unlimited deo. (Tried and tested - and approved). And now I know how Axe makes all its money!!

And those who havent figured it out, daylight saving and the axe effect are not linked.

And to think of it, I actually believed you when you said that you don't do drugs!

About using the Axe body wash, why don't you trash it and buy a new one :-/ *really confused* instead of using it everyday!??

#Demi: I dont think I am ever meeting you, since I have heard about your head-chopping tendency!

#Medha: Its not random. Read it again. Someday u'll get it!

#Abhi: U too. Read the post again!

#Mahi: Its better than being in denial and saying people around you are the ones who stink... while u's the stinkah!

#Brad: I am too cheap. And broke! If I throw it away and buy a new one, I exceed my budget!

Regardless of how you smell, think your brilliant personality will shine take precedence and shine thru the stink.
