A Brit a Day [#686]
I bought a watch with left-over Christmas money at a Japanese thrift shop I affectionately call the 99 Yen Store. The watch devoured three changes of battery in less that two weeks--but I've been mulling over the advantages of wearing a broken watch [first brought to my attention by Eddie Argos some years ago]--when you are cornered by someone you don't wish to talk to, you can always be running late for another meeting. A glance at your wrist, a look pleading for forgiveness...and you're off.
