Bernice: "This says an entomologists in New Zealand first proposed daylight saving time in 1895 so he could have more daytime to collect specimens"
Luann: "Entomologist? What's that?"
Bernice: "Someone who studies insects"
Luann: "So zillions of people turn their clocks because some kiwi bug-nut invented daylight savings time?"
Bernice: "Did you notice- I say 'daylight saving time,' using 'saving' as an adjective, like 'cost-saving measure.' You say 'savings,' as in 'savings account.' Interesting, huh?"
Luann: "Clearly we're not missing the hour"
