Kickass stores the extra hour

Kickass, the doorstop dog, has been trying to help the keeper find safe storage for the spare hour that showed up as a result of turning the clock back for DST, which Ben Franklin invented during one of his “air baths” that called for him to sit naked out in the cold, probably while flying a kite, until his gender appendage shrunk to the size of a black-eyed pea.

It was the keeper’s original plan to store the hour under the bed where it could be called out for use in the event of anything unexpected, either positive or negative; but Kickass pointed out that it was very dusty under the bed and storing the hour there would expose it to the microscopic detritus of decades wherein there might lurk harmful unrealistic expectations.

It was finally decided to store the extra hour in the kitchen with the pots and pans where it will be handy when and if the keeper and his Queen Phyllis get the urge some winter afternoon to make chicken noodle soup.  It could happen: they both really like soup.
