...waits for no one. Or, so saith the song. But -- maybe it does. Or can. Or will if you treat it well.
I have a thing for clocks and this one (in my den) is my favorite. It chimes with a good strong bong which I love. If I forget to wind it and it runs down and doesn't chime during the night, I can't sleep until I get up and come downstairs and wind it.
There's another pendulum clock in the den, a small porcelain one, white with painted flowers on it, as well as the clocks on the computer, TV, and telephone.
In the living room are two more chiming clocks, both mantel clocks (one an antique), and clocks on the TV and phone. There's another clock (chimes disabled) in the dining room, one in the kitchen (along with clocks on the stove, microwave, and coffeemaker), one in the bathroom, a small Seth Thomas that sits on a table in the hallway, three in the downstairs bedroom, and a black lacquer Art Deco clock on the console in the foyer.
There's a large, round Chinese red lacquer clock hanging on the wall going up the stairs, and a crystal clock on the chest in the upstairs foyer. In my bedroom is an "anniversary clock" with a glass dome, my alarm clock, and the clocks on the computer and TV. Also scattered about upstairs are another crystal clock, one chiming and one non-chiming wall clock, a novelty clock, a wind-up, ringing alarm clock, and ... more computer and TV clocks.
I believe that comes to a total of about 21 clocks, and my collection is not finished. Some people find my predilection with clocks odd. They wonder if I'm preoccupied, even obessed, with time -- or the passage thereof. I'm not. I just like clocks, and the louder they tick and chime and bong, the better I like them.
There is a reason I'm talking about clocks and ... time. It's so I won't have to think about the minute hands slouching onward toward this afternoon's unpleasant events. There's been no word yet that it's off, so I guess the rumble is on. Joy, joy.
