The Earth is slowing down, as all of us old folks do. And as Matt Rosenberg has alerted his readers, the standards officials of all the nations have agreed to give us an extra second to keep the clocks right. So I've been spending my time trying to figure out what to do with this extra second. I might spend it looking at the digital LL Bean clock on our wall, which gets updated constantly from the U.S. government clock in Colorado -- just to see if this really works.
Or I could spend it getting a head start on the midnight kiss. Whatever the case, I need to figure it out soon.
If you are reading this post after the new year, of course, you've already blown that second :-)
