In a word: indentation. Your else should line up with your if. Otherwise, you're doing great! :thumbsup:

Thank-you again Jennifer

:mailbox_with_mail: I got your request. It looks like Jennifer solved your immediate issue before I got here.

But I would add that you also have a stray expression: time == 14. It doesn't hurt anything, in fact it doesn't actually do anything since it's not part of an assignment or an evaluation.

If you were intending to define time yourself, you lucked out since that would have broken the challenge. The challenge defines it for you as part of the "check work" process.

Happy coding! :computer:
