Time

timeI’ve had this clock for years.  It came from The Agent Workshop when that company closed its doors.  I don’t remember why Q &/or M gave it to me, but they did and I put it up on the wall in my bathroom where it’s been ever since.  Sometime last year, the battery ran out and I didn’t care to replace it, so the clock has been stuck ever since.

It’s been years since I stopped wearing a watch.  Trying to remember when I realized I didn’t want to wear one anymore and, honestly, I can’t.  I think it was around the time when the first PDA phones became popular.  Or maybe just when I first became attached to a cell phone.  Either way, the phone had the time on it and I didn’t really need a watch any more, so I stopped wearing one.  Some people I’ve met since think this is just crazy.  My old boss was one of them.  To him, a watch was a status symbol.  He always had the very expensive gold version on his wrist.

Whatever.

Couple days ago, I put a battery in the clock and set the time.  The urge to do so hit me and I followed through with it.  I don’t know why.  Felt right.

This doesn’t mean I’m going to start wearing a watch again.  I think I am well past (or over) that.

    I have never been a fan of wrist watches, mainly because they tend to irriatate my skin after a few days. So my Phone has been my primary way of telling the time since i first got one.

    I have clocks all over the house, but my first response is to check out my phone to see what the time is.

    Saying that i do have a growing collection of Pocket watches.
