There are some members of my family who know about the strange and wonderful fascination I have with watches. My nieces and my daughter ridiculed me endlessly on our cruise because, more than the snorkeling and the fabulous views and the unending supply of food, I was excited about the $10 watches they had in the gift shop. I still have some of those watches. And I still LOVE them.
I like a big watch face that is easy to read (because I am frakin' blind) and I love pretty and different bands.
So, you can imagine how excited I was the other day in Kohl's when I was standing in line behind this woman and she whipped this out of her basket to purchase.
With an incredible amount of restraint; without causing a scene or even shrieking with excitement, I stepped out of line and went back to the jewelry department. And bought myself the same thing.
It's a WATCH. With DIFFERENT BANDS. How COOL is that?
So, now I have to choose which shoes I will wear each day.
And which watch band.
Life is HARD.
