1WC: Arbitrary Rule Change

Before we get to the rule change let's pour one out for @Davemcc who put up a good fight before the inevitable pull of his collection did him in. It wasn't a lack of strap changes, his bracelet was just fine. Great watch, good run.

I will be upfront that the reason for the rule changes is that we need to winnow the field. I frankly thought that there would be fewer than the Elite Eight who are still around. This rule is a chance to make a mistake and get sloppy (sort of like selling too many watches and then not having the minimum, if that sort of thing happens).

This new rule starts tomorrow on Monday, July 18, 2022. Your WRUW picture must be in compliance. One of the problems with the 1WC WRUW pictures is their inevitable sameness: same watch, same wrist. Boring.

So, let's spice it up using @Deeperblue 's photo theme thing. Each day for the next week you must incorporate an object into your WRUW picture. There is no extra credit for cleverness, but forget, and the swag won't be yours. The mandatory list:

Monday:  a hammer;

Tuesday: a flower;

Wednesday: a magazine (remember those?);

Thursday: a potted plant (in Australia these are called "pot plants" which I find endlessly amusing);

Friday: a carbonated beverage;

Saturday: an insect;

Sunday: a food that is not native to your country of origin (a burrito in Canada for example, or for the UK food with flavor).

Too much? I gave it to you in advance so that you can plan. If anything, it's too easy.

No, it's not supposed to be fun.

Now, some questions:

Does the flower, plant or insect need to be alive? 

Do my strawberries from Mexico count on Sunday?

Then you’re doing it wrong, it is fun. Totally fun. The funnest.

I just want to point out that burritos grow in Canada too.

No to both questions. Enjoy some huevos rancheros or wienerschnitzel on Sunday. Everyone has strawberries, even if not in season.

I don't recognise your description of British cuisine. This is what I microwaved in work on friday night and it was very tasty

I am not part of this but I am truly looking forward to the insects on Saturday 😏

I avoid rules. If you dance to another mans drum there are strings you do not see.

Love the rule change!

Can I just make the quick point that although WC thinks I am wearing Benedict Cumberbatch today...

...as appealing as that idea is, it is still the Seiko.

I've found that if I reply to a WRUW comment with a gif or pic and then post my WRUW, the reply gets honored as my shot for the day
