I have had the feeling all week that I had lost something. I couldn't quite put my finger on it but there was this nagging undercurrent of deprivation that permeated my psyche.
And then this morning, the disturbance in my force became apparent. I was running a little late with my morning post, which I normally try to publish at 8:00 EDST. The clock on my computer said that I had five minutes left to do so.
And then in the background, I heard that little pinging chiming sound that alerts viewers that Sportscenter on ESPN is restarting.
What??? Sportscenter recycles on the hour or the half hour. Not five minutes before the hour. I looked at the kitchen clock and it said 8:01 A.M.
Then the horror of the reality of the situation hit me. Could my computer's clock be off by five minutes? It didn't seem possible, as the clock is set to automatically synchronize with the Windows time server.
I opened up the clock adjustment and manually synchronized the clock. Amazingly, five minutes disappeared as I lurched ahead into the future. Five minutes, gone forever, and they will never to be recovered.
I have my theories. I have been driving pretty fast lately, and I usually have my laptop with me, so I must assume that the computer's clock was affected by time-velocity relativity. The faster I traveled, the slower the clock on my computer moved relative to an outside observer.
So I need to do one of two things: I either need to check the clock on my computer more often, or I need to slow down when I drive.
Hey, how hard is it to check a clock every once in a while?
