It's my Year of the Horse Swatch Watch. I got it for myself to celebrate my very special birthday in the Chinese sign that I was born under (no, I'm not Chinese, but let's let that go for the moment). It's too big for my wrist, but I love it and wear it as often as I can.
What's the problem? It ticks. Loudly. I keep it with the rest of my everyday jewelry on the counter in the dressing area, where I sit and do my makeup and general fussing. Each day I sit at the counter and hear the ticking. It is rhythmic, as you would expect.
Without being able to hear it, I'm sure you cannot make the connection. These are the words I start singing with it:
"Turned away from it all
Like the blind man
Sat on a fence, but it don't work
Keep coming up with love
But it's so slashed and torn
Why? Why? Why?"
Yep. I'm continually Under Pressure.
What song do you get in your head the most? Or have I opened a box you'd rather not look into?
