In an other strike against the Invicta Pro Diver, I got a rash from wearing it on a hot and humid day. At least i looked cool at that 4th of July cookout ("wtf is that?" "Yeah I know, isn't it hilarious?") I know it was the PD because cheap metal jewelry always have some effect on my wrist. It was annoying to wear a watch on my left wrist with the rash, but I cannot go with out a watch. What am I going to do, pull out my phone all the time like I'm carrying a pocket watch? Having to ask strangers for the time, only to wait for them to pull out their phone? Ghastly. I don't even want to talk to anyone today. Just walking around with no idea of the time, despite the fact that I have 10 watches seems like a cry for help. But I never wear my watch on my right wrist!
I don't want to wear even a moderately nice watch on my dominant hand, I know it's more likely to get smacked into something. But all of my g shocks are so big! Even my square feels like, this sounds weird but I can't think of a way to say it better, there's something on my wrist. 4 days out of the week or so I wear a bit of cord around my right wrist, usually a rubber band, so it's not like I have a totally naked wrist. I like my watches to be a little gadgety, and i use the functions on my watch all the time, so using my left hand to mess with my watch adds another level of oddness to the whole thing. Also I had no idea my wrists are different sizes, just enough to make a difference.
I'm thinking of going back to that green g shock, at least the light is in the middle. And I guess that's one of my beaters as I have gone as far as boiling it. I don't want to wear my 6900 because I wear it all the time and want to use all my watches to some capacity. Plus both have shocked me with their bulk. My G Shocks only get bigger after those. I tried on my protek, but I imagine that's what wearing Leela's wrist device might feel like, plus that band isn't great. There is usually a pen and a knife in my right pocket, sometimes the pen frees up and I gotta dig around my pocket. I don't have "nice" knives, by knife standards, but I don't want it to get caught on the watch and have it come flying outta my pocket. Luckily I'm just hanging out so I don't have to carry anything.
The only sensible solution to this quandary is to go buy another watch. This presents it's own challenge, which involves leaving my place. I could try going to a thrift store and picking something out, but a 25 dollar find might turn out to be a bust. And then I'll have to be... out there. Navigating the streets that will seem weird and unfamiliar because I have my watch on the wrong wrist. It'll feel like a Phillip K Dick story, you know what I mean. I don't want to even consider driving right now, something I do begrudgingly at the best of times. Luckily I have tea and coffee in the place. Bread. 1 Energy drink i can combine with an edible if I want to feel like I'm in a story where I'm not my self but don't know it yet. Yeah I'll be okay. I think.
