Do All Watches Look Alike... Being Me Has It.s Privileges... 🤔

"Being me has its privileges..." was what he said, just before he grinned and disappeared in a puff of black smoke.

There was a Harry Potter festival on TV the other night and that wizard had the power to dissolve into thin air. I wondered what I'd do with such a skill? I think I'd forgo THAT power and just practice the other spell. You know, the one that makes all the other cars vanish and finds the perfect parking spot - in a jammed mall. For fucks sake... I thought the crazy season was over!

Inside the vast expanse of that retail bonanza... spring had already sprung. All the winter gear was selling at a huge discount. We have two feet of snow on the ground, winter is less than half over and I'm looking at three pairs of size twelve boots, bare shelves and bikinis. There's a problem here. I'll probably regret, NOT buying those boots... sometime next December. I found a measly pair of gloves.

As I paid, the lady at the cash hesitated... then smiled coyly at me - while I flashed my credit card. "Nice watch," she grinned.

That's the same watch featured in my profile pics. Damn... I gotta be more careful. Then again, my careless disregard for details- had opened a door. Turns out, she was wearing a ring - and married.

Behind me, waited two rather large women who were arguing the merits of weight loss. One spoke to the other. "Large people like me will never get 'taken'," she exclaimed. "After they use the chloroform, they'd never be able to lift me into the truck."

Interesting - albeit inappropriate - point. They were joking and laughed in my direction. I hid my wrist (the one with the watch), into my pants pocket as I smiled and walked away.

An inch of snow covered my car as I approached - a short time later. There was, a total of seven and a half - predicted. That's enough for the hopeless romantics. Yet, it was too much for me. Everyone has their own set of standards, right?

My new gloves provided toasty warmth, as I swept the snow off my windshield. I thought about what that lady behind the counter had said. I mean seriously ; who looks at the watch? Besides... all watches look alike - if you pay attention to what people say here.

I don't think ALL watches look alike. I imagine it depends on the watch doesn't it? 🤔

Spring break for students is not far away. Most of them go where it's warm.

Watches are basically shaped the same but individual watches will vary on the detail.

The heavy lady has a point - given a choice, the snatcher will go for the easier (skinny) target. I've always declared that by being fat, I'll live longer in a famine. That worked well until someone suggested I might be eaten first when people turned to cannibalism.

Opportunity may knock only once, but temptation bangs on the door forever!

There are some things that stand out to others, what an interesting read today. I don't wear a watch. As I am better with faces as I have a great memory for the most part. It's just amazing what kind of interesting conversations we can hear while were out shopping. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day..

Seduce the mind and see what a wonderful adventure the body will take you on..

I don't wear a watch or any kind of jewelry. The 1st thing I look at when I see a woman is her face, then I look at her hand.

I'm thinking that whole cannibal thingy... is just not appetizing. You'd be safe in MY tribe. At least... from loosing a limb or a toe.
I'm not saying that you wouldn't be eaten. 😶

Faces are easy to remember, aren't they.
I'm pretty sure people know when they're being overheard. 😊

No jewelry at all?
I figured you, for an earring guy.
I'll also go for the face... Why the hands and what does that show you?

lol... No mention of size, in THIS one.
'Distinctive'... (or whether they are) was the adjective sought.
But... I get your point. Close... 😊
Do you have a favorite watch? 🤔

First of all, I love watches. I wear a cheap watch to work, when I worked, and upgrade when I when out, and even upgrade more when I had to be formal. I'm a brother, so I MUST have swag! You have that talent of telling a story. Talk to Joy, to have you write your book on short stories.

If a salesclerk commented about a watch or ring I was wearing, I would be uncomfortable, feeling they had stared way too closely in order to notice. However, if they noticed the fragrance I was wearing, it wouldn't bother me as that's happened many times.
After my parents died, I was going through their jewellery. I was amazed to find watches I had never seen before. Tucked amongst them was a poem my Dad wrote to my Mom when he had given one of them to her. I gently put it back and closed the box.

Hmmm... Interesting point. Perhaps she DID notice my cologne but was shy to comment about THAT, so she chose my watch as a likely alternative.
I wear Mont Blanc, so that might explain things... if you've ever smelled it. 😊
Sounds like a poignant moment which brought back memories dear to you. 😘

People start taking their vacations about now.... Cruises and trips to Mexico and such. One of my coworkers is in Cancun right now...

My writing has given me away, before. Its an odd, somewhat scary thought, when you think about it. Both cases turned out to be harmless, and the men who sought me out just wanted to meet the girl who wrote the funny blog, but what if there were a third person, who remained in the shadows, who was not harmless?

That's a great safety tip. So they think you're funny do they? 😂
Be careful... You can try and be LESS funny.
