Tick Tock Tick Tock

Stumble upon my old watch while doing some cleaning up involving a huge pile of clothes and a lorry full of old furniture, it's amazing how much junk a family can collect. Back to the watch, it's actually not an old watch but it's a birthday gift from my mom 2 years back, I wear it for quite some time but stopped wearing it sometime early last year, never had that habit of wearing a watch anyway so left it at a corner collecting dust.
After dusting and cleaning the watch, I set the time and wind it up and see if it still works, as soon as I push the dial in, the sweeping hand starts to move, it's ALIVE!!!
I stare at it for a while, keeping my eyes on the movement of the minute hand. It's moving for sure but instead of noticing that the watch is working fine, I noticed how fast the minute hand is actually going from 20 it continue towards 25 and before I know it, I just lost 5 minutes... and how much time had I wasted before I realized this? All I can say now is "Damn...".
Time is running out gotta get ready for my flight now.

Have a Great Day
