My Stupid Watch

My watch died some time on Sunday. I never replace batteries, because by the time they die I usually need a new band as well, and by that time I may as well just get a new watch. So I went out to Target and got a new one.

Unfortunately, I was all hopped up on cold medicine and didn’t make a wise watch choice.

This is the watch I got. It’s big and ugly and stupid and it has a compass in the band that doesn’t work and it’s stupid and also I hate it. It looks like it probably should have had Inspector Gadget on the box it came in and that it shoots plastic missiles or dispenses candy.

I’m probably going to take it back to Target when I get back home and get a more sensible cheap-ass watch.

    Perhaps in honor of analog Thursdays you might consider an analog watch that is easier on the eyes! And even better, how about a cheap-ass analog automatic watch? You would never need to worry about replacing batteries ever, since your wild gesticulations during board gaming would keep the timepiece powered up all your life!

    Cool yours has a button that says LIGHT….What does it do?

    That watch is shit, it’s true.

    Did it at least come with a kerosene lantern?

    This goes up there with the skunk incident and the dog-tummy incident on the list of “things that go wrong when I’m not with you.”

    You’re crazy, that watch is awesome, it’s like a watch James Bond would wear…in Moonraker.

    At least it’s not a woman’s watch….

    I am hoping we will see a picture of it on fire… like that meeple. Please? Just be sure to take it off first. There’s at least a tank of gas on your wrist.

    Speaking of analog, there’s the crazy old man who repairs watches at the Holyoke flea market (he was at the Hadley one before). He has a bunch of cool old automatic and wind up watches for cheap. Better than anything you’d find at Target, that is for sure. Just don’t go there hopped up on cold medicine… that dude’s wig could completely harsh on your trip. There’s also a lot of comics, sometimes games (nothing too interesting) at the other vendors.
