My Watch

This is my watch.

My brother bought it for me in college. Why did he buy it for me? Because I was always late.

He said, “Here, Ted, this is a watch. It tells you what time it is so that you can get places on time. Use it often.”

I did use it often. And I was often on time.

I got so good at it (being on time), in fact, that I stopped wearing my watch about 2 years ago. And, for the most part, I’ve been remained fairly prompt.

Well, guess what? I started wearing my watch again this morning. Unfortunately, it was time—but now I’m on time.
