Is it better to be fashionably late? Or is 10 minutes early on time?

Daylight Saving Time has us chatting all about time for What’s the Buzz

What’s the Buzz: Time on Live in the D

Are you feeling that extra hour of sleep this morning, but missing the extra hour of daylight already? Time has once again shifted, and that’s what we discussed today on What’s the Buzz. Host Jason Carr was joined by friends of the show Blaine Fowler, host of “The Blaine Fowler Morning Show” on 96.3 WDVD, comedian Melanie Hearn, and Vanessa Cohen, the co-founder of the Cohen Brand and owner of Motor City Date Night.

First, what would you do if you had more time? Fowler and Hearn went with the popular answer of more time to sleep. Between waking up early to be on the radio, and Hearn’s busy touring schedule, they both need more time to rest. Cohen went a different direction with the question and had a list of things she wished she had done sooner, including graduating more quickly and marrying her husband earlier on.

Next, we asked: Are you a fan of being fashionably late, or do you like to be somewhere on time? Again, Cohen put a lot of thought into her answer saying she doesn’t like to arrive too early to an event because then she feels she is a part of the set-up crew. So she likes to come a bit after the start time. Fowler, on the other hand, said if you’re not 10 minutes early, you are late. Splitting the difference, Hearn says it really depends on the situation.

So with your time, do you like to be productive or would you prefer to relax? While Cohen says she doesn’t mind doing responsible things, like cleaning and cooking, if she has free time, she likes to relax. Fowler says he has to budget his time, or else the important things will never get done. So, he plans out when he will get chores done, and when he can relax. It’s all about fun for Hearn. The comedian joked that her life is all about the laughs.
