Unstuck in Time

Working a job where the hours and even the days of the work week are changeable and offset from the rest of the universe can be kind of surreal. As witness the conversation I had with a couple of my co-workers at about 8 o'clock this morning (which, please note, is a Monday):

Co-Worker #1 [roughly paraphrased]: "Hey, how's it going today?"
Co-Worker #2: "Eh. It's a Thursday."
Me: "It's Tuesday."
Co-worker #1: "It's Monday evening!" [pause] "Is this what Chicago meant when they said, 'Does anybody really know what time it is?'"
Me: "Does anybody really care?"
