Morgan: What’s the big deal with this daylight savings time? Time is time. Why does it make a difference?
Mollie: Little grasshopper, it’s all about the food.
Morgan: Food? Why?
Mollie: The crazy people who live here feed us on THEIR schedule, not ours. (Our schedule says feed at 3 a.m. That’s when our ancestors hunted.) We have to wait until they get up. In the spring they get up an hour earlier so we get fed an hour earlier.
Morgan: That should make Hazel happy!
Hazel: Food? Are we talking food here?
Mollie: The problem is in the fall. The clocks go back. They feed us an hour later.
Hazel: I remember that. I hollered loud and long until I got fed.
Mollie: I remember too. I had to go under the bed so I didn’t hear your serenade. You know you can’t sing.
All: Crazy humans!
