Dark-Thirty in Texas

Even though your eyes adjust as the light declines during twilight, there comes a point when you just cannot see anymore. That’s what we Texans call dark-thirty.

Texans who work from can till cain’t and Texans who love outdoor activities know about dark-thirty. Sometimes we are glad, and sometimes we are sad when dark-thirty comes along.

“How late did y’all play last night?”

“It was about dark-thirty when we finally stopped. Travis liked to never let us quit. Man, I was hungry! It was way past time to go back to the house.”
