Dear Fellow Loungers,
I have just today been informed that for my whole life, I have been mis-informed about how to tell the time!
Apparently, what I normally would have known as 12.00 noon, is actually 12.00am, and not 12.00pm as I have been told all my life!
And similarly, 12.00 midnight is NOT 12.00am, but should be 12.00pm!
Because of the way we count, the telling of time does not become 1pm until after 12.59am (that is, 59 minutes AFTER noon). LIkewise, we should say 1am only after 12.50pm (or 59 minutes after midnight)...confusing?
After doing a bit of home work, and looking at how the Romans used a "12" at the top of their sundial, and not a "0" (because they hadn't discovered ta zero yet), and nothing has ever changed since... it seems that I need to have a new perspective in how to tell the time!
How many Loungers are like me? And how many Loungers were already aware of this issue?
Should we get a special edition Hour Lounge watch with this face?
Look forward to hearing your thoughts,
