WTF? I am confused, this random spooky thing happened to me today…
I think I’m losing it. (Okay, more so.)
Okay, so anyway, my favourite beaded bracelet watch stopped working MONTHS ago, hubby concluded that it was just the battery and as it was only a cheap $10 watch it would probably cost more to replace the battery than the watch, but I really LOVED it and I was sad that it had died so I kept it anyway.
I saw the watch sitting on my jewelry stand this morning and I decided to just put it on my right hand wrist and wear it as a pretty bracelet for the day, I had my other working watch on my left side and I thought I could just go and see what a new battery for it would cost when I went into town today to do groceries.
When I got to town, the watch fixing place was all closed up for some reason so unfortunately, I couldn’t take it in. It was a bugger, but I figured I would try again next time.
Just now I looked down at the broken watch & then at my proper watch and realised that the time was correct, I laughed thinking to myself ‘what are the odds, oh well it’s going to be right two times a day!’ and then I looked again and saw that it was ticking…
It was DEFINITELY not working this morning… Even if for some reason, something had bumped it and made it go again while I was wearing it today, WHY IS THE TIME CORRECT?
It does not make any sense.
Possible explanations running through my warped mind include:
- Most likely: I disassociated and had it replaced and then forgot, which would amusingly mean that by losing time, I in fact gained it… I joke, but that actually scares the crap out of me because I am unaware of any missing parts of today and I haven’t (to my knowledge) actually lost any chunks of time in AGES. If I am disassociating and doing things like that, then what else am I doing?
- Unlikely: (and perhaps slightly paranoid…) Someone is messing with me and replaced it or had it fixed without saying anything… No. I’m certain the watch was on my wrist the whole time I was out and the chances of someone pickpocketing me, fixing a watch they didn’t know was broken and returning it are lower than winning the jackpot on a poker machine.
- Highly unlikely: Magical act of God caused by good behaviour? I actively chose not to gamble today when I had an opportunity – side note: it was bloody hard and I am very proud of myself!
- Impossibly unlikely: My Twitter joke yesterday about being a time traveler somehow turned out to be true and I time travelled into next week and got and new battery and then came back again without remembering any of it?
Gahhh! I don’t like ANY of those options! Especially at the moment because I’ve been a bit in and out of a buzzy little dream world lately and sometimes telling what is happening in your mind and what is happening in real life is a touch blurry. *Thinks* is the watch even working or did I imagine that whole thing? *looks at watch again* yep it’s definitely working…
So people of the internet…Any ideas? Please??
