I overslept a little this morning, but not enough to make a difference in my work ETA. So, I sat at my computer to check blogs and e-mails and such. At one point, I checked my watch, which I had set beside my computer the night before, and thought, “Hmmm, 6:35, still plenty of time. I must have looked at my bedside clock wrong."
When I got out of the shower, I sat at my makeup mirror checked my watch and thought, “7:35. Crap. Not much time. Shift it into high gear, sister.” I leave my house at 7:50 so that gave me 15 minutes to do hair and makeup which is possible if I initiate warp speed mode and take lots of shortcuts hair and makeup-wise.
Luckily, I remembered hearing on the news, while laying in bed hitting the snooze button, that there had been a pipeline explosion in Port Arthur. Not lucky that there was an explosion, but lucky that I decided to turn on the television which I don’t usually do in the morning. When I turned on the television, News Guy announced that it was 7:45.
“Odd, I thought. Those News Guys are usually accurate with the time. I wonder what’s wrong with his clock.”
Five minutes later, he announced that it was 7:51. How could it possibly be 7:51 when my watch…STILL says 7:35?! My watch had stopped at 2:35. All morning, I had only been looking at the big hand on my watch.
So, I need a new watch. Are digital watches still cool?
