Mama says I have a clock in my head. If we do something at the same time each day, by the 3rd time, that is added to my inner clock. I know these times
3 am wake up time and my dog food
6 am parents breakfast and my 2nd breakfast
6:40 or as soon as breakfast is over, walk my Mama
10 AM mama gets a watermelon slushy, I get a spoon of it
12 Noon, Lunch, people and me
3 pm exactly 12 hours after dog food, another cup of dog food.
5 pm lite dinner for all of us and bed time at 7:30.
AT Any Time, if anyone forgets, my alarm goes off.
It sounds like growling woosss.
Take it away now Mama.
Its YOUR Time to Talk.
My parents ate at 7, 12, and 5. Daddy had hissy fits if anything interfered in his schedule and all things were arranged around his eating times.
My mother knew to make appointments around these times.
Mother and my brother had no clock in their head.
When someone had our family over for dinner, which happens a lot since Daddy was the Pastor of a church, he would grumble and growl because they always wanted us to eat at 6 or 7.
He swore it made him sick to eat that late.
I have a clock in my head, it is the FOOD clock, I don't have to look at the clock at any of the above listed times, I just know, even if I am in a Doctors office, my stomach tells me it is 10 am.
at any of our EATING times, my stomach feels empty. Now I understand Daddy
I schedule around those times too.
Bob has a Time Clock in his head. he doesn't need a watch, He can set the time, like if we need to be somewhere at a certain time, he sets it in his head and knows when to come in and get dressed.
We have never used an alarm clock in 38 years. He sets it for what time to get up.
Want to get up at 2 and leave at 3 to beat the traffic, just tell him and he wakes up.
My youngest son, has the clock but did not until he was 40 years old and is now an early bird
My oldest son has no clock and has been since birth a night owl.
Genetics? Trained? Dog in another life?
