The communicating watches.

Now, over the past few years I like all things camo.

So I went to this sportsman's warehouse, and what did I spy with my little eye?
You guessed it, a camo watch.
And it wasn't even that expensive.

So I had this one watch, and the strap broke.
So I went to the shop to get a new strap, only to discover the strap costs more than a new watch.
So, being the dutiful capitalist that I am, I bought another watch.

To be brief, currently I have three camo watches.

One on my wrist, one in the drawer and one on my shelf.

And I could swear, around every hour they communicate.
No really, these things are worse than Furbies!

Beep, beep - it's five minutes to the hour.
Beep, beep - it's probably on the hour.
And then "beep, beep" in case you missed it.

But surely you can turn off the alarm?
Easier said than done, and I managed to switch off the "big" alarm.
I'm honestly so techno-phobic that the first two watches were set by shop attendants.
But with the third, I thought I had this down.

Are they communicating with each other?
Wanting to zzz - but BEEP BEEP (times three).
Just the communists wanting you to know, another 60 odd minutes have passed.
Huh? OK then.

Oh the terrible truth:

"Some broken hearts never mend,
And some watch-straps cannot be replaced".

Pick one. Call it the " Chosen One ", then, with a heavy heart turf out the broken ones.

You know you CAN ...

Watch number one.
Water-proof apparently.
But alas, your camo strap is gone.

Watch number two.
"Splash proof" apparently.
Not sure what that means.
Maybe OK to wash the dishes after the rugby game.

Watch number three.
Makes no claims of water-tightness.
Just press every thing four iimes and you're back on the time.
Pity if you want to look butch in the shower, but my pick.
And, it actually cost R200 less than the other two.
But, don't get too attached.
The warranty is only 30 days.

But then again watch number three actually came with a pretty decent English translation.
The other two were like huh?
Oh "light".
Only thing I could make out.

All nice wanting to extend your "masculinity" (whatever that means), but it may back-fire if you walk into a bar, and the first thing people say to you is "Why's your watch so fogged up?"

And I know they're all thinking, oh well somebody went to the sauna.

You know what they say about being masculinine ... posture, posture ... and oooh look at the big, I mean cheap watch.
But that's okay, even the working classes like to mingle, just they may not be single.
You know what these miners are like.

Hence I'd say, a very important thread.
We're constantly told All our suffering comes from the top-down "isms", like sexism, racism and homophobia, for example.
Yeah, there my be intersectionality in cases, but most of our suffering actually happens in human relationships not included by that.

Maybe it's the Kali-Yuga, but I sometimes feel there's a spreading darkness in our societies.

If you don’t have to be somewhere at an exact time then take a big gigantic hammer and smash your watches into oblivion. Here in Texas, I can watch the sun and tell you an almost exact time by the placement of the Sun in the sky.

And imagine they brought back conscription - try getting any sleep with a Platoon of BEEPS.

In the middle of night.

Shut your watch off bro!
My watch?
Why don't you shut your watch off!

This is not going to end well.
