I can't believe there is so much injustice in the world. Maybe that's why Humor Bloggers Dot Com has declared this month to make fun of injustice in any way we possibly can. That's why I'm back to do my part and no, today's topic is not about those blood-sucking mini-vampires that attack warm, moist, hairy bodies in the summer time.
Hum...It was warm here last week.
Excuse me while I go do a body check.
OK. All clear. Back to the post.
I'm referring to my poor neglected timepiece. That's right. My watch. I used to wear Miss Minnie all the time but since she stopped ticking and only shows the correct time twice a day, I stopped wearing. I haven't missed her much. Around the house I use my oven clock or the computer clock or even the clock on one of several telephones.
In a geek perfect world, all the house clocks would be synchronized. But they're not. Not even close. I think we have one thermostat clock that is about 20 minutes off. Note to self: FIX THAT TODAY.
In the car, there's a clock. At the gym, clocks, clocks everywhere, and, no, none of them are reporting the same time.
That reminds me of a group activity that we did as part of a beginning fitness instructor training class. We had to draw a picture of the perfect instructor. Everyone always drew her/him wearing a watch because we all knew that good instructors wore watches to make sure they accurately start and end class. This is in the old days before you could say "What time is it?" and a handheld device would answer you back.
ReformingGeek yawns in memory of that particular training class.
What else did we draw on that poor model? I'm glad you asked. We drew the hair pulled back out of the face and the model was wearing appropriate clothing and shoes. (Sorry guys, no boobs popping out.)
I'll take a guess at what some of you guys would draw on a female instructor model: Revealing clothing and..... Forget that. She would be nude with big boobs and voluptuous curves. The ladies would show the guy model with six-pack abs and striking a sexy pose, right?
I cheated and substituted the following photo for my instructor model:
I was pulled aside for a little chat. Sigh. I had to conform. Now THAT was an injustice.
As for my lonely timepiece, I could get a new battery for Ms. Minnie but I think I need a LARGE PRINT version. DANG! That's another injustice.
It never stops....tick, tick, tick.
