I Have Wasted Time And Now Doth Time Waste Me [Apr. 23rd, 2005|09:28 am]
Tony Grist
Most of the spam emails I get are trying to sell me viagra and cialis (the weekend viagra) but- by way of a refreshing change- I got one this morning from "Josh" pushing a "replica" Rolex. "Stun your friends," he said.

Sorry Josh, but I'm death to all watches. Last one I wore, I broke the strap within 24 hours. I don't do it on purpose, but I can't help fiddling with the damn things. And Ailz is worse. She can't wear one at all. Her subtle aura sends their delicate little innards doolally.

But, then, I've never really understood why a watch would be considered a desirable item of personal jewellery. A diamond is forever, but a watch's chief business is to remind you that you're not. It's a symbol of servitude. A slave bracelet. Hurry, hurry, hurry, rush, rush, rush; Get a move on and get things done before you arrive at the edge of Time and drop off.

Clocks are another matter; they're all right, they know their place; they don't cling to you like a watch does. Talking about dropping off, we've got a pendulum clock in the back room that wants to commit suicide. It's very lightweight and its rocking motion causes it to skitter forward towards the edge of its shelf. Every morning I have to push it back into place. That's my kind of timepiece- one I can pity and patronize. There, there, you poor little neurotic thing; life's not so bad really.

Time is an invention of humankind. I do have clocks in my house, and from room to room there might be five minutes' difference. It's all relative, isn't it? But I admit,I do have a watch. It was VERY cheap. I tend to catch them on things...the bands. I think they CAN be fun, but when I get home at night the first thing I take off is my watch, and I NEVER wear one on weekends unless I have a fancy function to go to.

Rings are my thing...and after I've worn them for awhile I take them off to put lotion on my hands and...they're bent. I read an article about a football player who broke his Superbowl ring, and he said he was the kind of person who knew where he was by the 'feel' of things. I recognized myself, there. And that's why I assume MY rings are like that.

I don't wear rings myself (well, I've got two on my little finger, that's all) but I like buying them for other people.
