Approximately When

An analog wristwatch in this day and age is quite redundant - a fashion accessory at best. Many of us wear them because we are creatures of habit. The digital clocks on the oven, computer, microwave, cell phone and the car dash tell us of every passing minute. There is nothing approximate or languorous about the passage of time anymore. A watch that reads "Around Six O'clock" between 5:57 and 6:03 would do much to soothe the nerves on those overworked and overscheduled days.

I had quite a bit of trouble finding an analog wristwatch with a plastic band and a sweeping second hand. Target didn't have them. I had to go to Wal-mart. I needed one exactly like that because I'm a nurse. My old watch with the leather wrist band got infected.
