You know what sucks?
Some punk kid assumes, then accuses you of wearing your wristwatch because you’re vain. Then, you look at it to see the date and you realize you can’t read numerals that small anymore… so you look the date up on your cell phone. Then you laugh, because the cell phone doesn’t have a chord, doesn’t plug into or hang on the wall, and doesn’t weigh 18 pounds (see Lethal Weapon – the first movie). Then you realize Lethal Weapon came out in ’87. Then it hits you just how long ago that was.
That’s what sucks.
Later that day, you look out at your $30,000 car, parked next to your spouse’s $40,000 car, that you can afford, with insurance, and without worrying about gassing them up when they need fuel, as you’re sitting in the warmth and comfort of your 4 bedroom home on your acre and a half… and you remember your company paid for that $1,000 phone and for your service. Then your financial planner calls to let you know that your shorting the market on Corona virus worries worked… and now you can afford a Rolex with one of those neat magnifying windows for the date.
That’s turning a frown upside-down, baby.
Enjoy your new watch – wear it in good health, as we say here.
Love, light, and glitter
Life marches on. I’m reminded of that each year when we find out what experiences and history the new first year students do not know. Wow. I’m now almost old enough to be their gramma! Crikey.
