It seems like day one, time has been my task master. Early on, from anxiously waiting everyday to admire Judith Wright’s angelic face in second grade, to counting the last moments riding my Schwinn Scrambler before sunset on a hot summer’s day, to now counting down the last moments of a miserable business day…time ticks, ticks, ticks away…and we are whittled away with it.
Time’s brutal tactics don‘t end while awake, but follow me into the other one third of my life — while I sleep. The bump in the night, the occasional bathroom break, or a need for a glass of water often times finds me roaming the house…compelled to know what time it is. So I wear a watch to see the time…to continually measure its influence as it speaks to me from my wrist. The best watch in my collection for a night time watch is my Armitron Griffy. It’s the lighthouse of watches and assists these aging eyes in preparing what time has in store for me.
Do you wear a watch while sleeping? If so, which watch and why?
