The Times They Are A-Changin’

It occurred to me the other day that I no longer wear a watch.

The crazy thing is – I have no idea when I stopped!

Remember several years ago when having a collection of modestly priced watches became popular? It was fun to have a variety of choices to coordinate with your wardrobe – gold, silver, casual, dressy!

And remember how we all learned to pull out the stem on a watch, if it wasn’t being worn, so as not to wear out the battery? Now that was a valuable tip.

I may not know when I stopped bothering with my watch, but I think I’ve figured out why!

It was my cell phone. 😉 Once that phone was in the picture, I must have gradually become less concerned about popping on a watch on my way out the door. Makes sense! Whenever I’m in a situation where I might not be near a clock, I usually have my cell phone with me – and it’s just as easy to take a peek at the phone for the time.

OK. Mystery solved!

There’s just one problem.

I have this little drawer full of pretty watches with their stems pulled out . . . 😉
