Recently I was house-sitting for some friends. It’s not a huge house, but pretty good-sized. It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. But I realized it had a lot of clocks.
It seems to me eight is enough – three clocks in the master bedroom, one in the son’s room, one in the living room, two in the kitchen, and one in the breakfast bar. And if I’m there, I wear a watch and the clock lights up on my cell phone.
So now we have ten. There is blue, green, white, red, white and blue. Some are round, some are square, and some oblong. A few have hands; most are digital. But all of them have this in common –
NONE OF THEM TELL THE CORRECT TIME!
