Time Zones

I just committed the cardinal layover sin: I forgot about the time zone that I was in when picking up the phone to call a friend in a different time zone.

I was up having coffee, reading the paper, and organizing my day. It was early, but not terribly early. I read a very funny article and just had to call a friend to talk about it.

Oooooooops. I’m currently in the Eastern time zone. She isn’t. I was wide awake and ready to chat. She was sound asleep and wanted to stay that way.

My bad.

I need to think about my time zones more often. It's not difficult here in the continental U.S., but when I travel out of the country, or call friends who are out of the country, I need to be sure to check my
time zones.

But this morning, I really did have something important to talk about!

Yeah, I hate the time zone thing. Always frustrating when I want to talk to people early in the day.
