It Takes A Lickin' And It Just Keeps Tickin''
Do you recognize the title of my post? Ring any bells? It was in the advertising for Timex Watches. ha ha - well I'm here to tell you - it does just that - keeps right on tickin'!
Usually once or twice a week I go to the CP Center and do some walking and exercises in their warm water therapy pool. Last Friday I was 15 minutes into the class and chatting away like a magpie with a couple of ladies. All of a sudden I pulled my arm out of the water and looked down - whoops! I had drowned my watch in water for 15 minutes. Well, we all had a good laugh over that and since I had already dunked it for 15 minutes, I figured I might as well stay in the water another 15 minutes until the class was over.
Would you believe (6 days later) the watch is still working just fine? I would imagine after a few weeks parts will turn rusty and there will come a day when it won't "keep tickin'". But I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. i'm in awe of this $40.00 watch that is probably 5 years old now anyway.
Sometimes I wonder where my brain is or if I even have one anymore. Have you ever done that?
Until next time,
