Do you normally wear a wrist watch? When is the last time you went without? I've worn a watch most every day since I started college 36 years ago (groan). Last night the battery died (I presume) in my watch. So, no watch today. It drove me nuts. That simple turn of the wrist to check the time, how many times each day? I've got to get myself to the mall. Maybe Saturday. 'A' will L-O-V-E me for a mall trip on her day off! It's going to be a long 3+ days.

And there was I thinking that ladies had a different watch to match their shoes, handbags, mood, dress colour etc etc..

I still have my old watch from years back.....so old...it's a wind-up!
And the one I wear every day is my father's...the one he was given by Cadburys (Chocolate firm) after 25 years service. Also a wind-up.

Mmmm, I gave up on the match-y thing ages ago and went for the goes with almost everything approach. I discovered that I always wore the same, favorite, watch, necklace, earrings, rings day after day. So except for the rare dress-up for a special event (and may I emphasize rare). In daily use: three gold bracelets that never come off, silver loop earrings, necklace with the handle of my silver baby spoon as the 'charm', and ordinarily my watch with a silver/gold band. No rings unless dressed up. Now I do have more jewelry, mostly family stuff, and it is worn once in a looonnnggg while.

I gave it up a while back... John is always looking for the perfect watch for me but I've become just as happy to check the time on my cell phone... It definitely took awhile to get used to! I would wear my watch MORE than my glasses and I can't see clearly as far as my nose! Which means I slept with my watch on and only took it off to shower. But John gave me this one watch that my wrist had a bad reaction to -- broke out in a bubbly rash that took NINE MONTHS to stop bubbling... Doesn't that sound fun? John used to use a pocket watch because he couldn't stand watch bands and now HE is the one wearing a watch and I'm the one without!

Nah, couldn't do the cell phone. I just don't have it 'on' me enough...or even on, for that matter. If I did, then I'd have to remember to charge it more frequently than I have to now. I sometimes have the same problem, with rings, as you with the watch.
