Only Adults Wear Watches

I guess I'm an adult then. Or I was.
Jane took my watch a few days ago trying to make me get up from a nap and play with her. I should have, but laziness won. And that means I lost. I lost my watch. Toddlers.
Then, last night, on a last minute run to Target to get some ink so I could make my Young Women's handouts, I decided to treat myself to a new necklace. While analyzing all the options, a couple of kids (by kids I mean teenagers...guess that makes me old) walked by talking about watches and how lame they are. One of them said, "Ha ha ha, only adults wear watches, ha ha ha." What does that mean? Since when is it lame to be aware of the time? I've actually had the same watch for about 18 years (yeah, that's pretty lame), which means I was wearing one when I was in middle school. Was I even nerdier than I thought I was?
So, I guess I should thank Jane for making me cool again. Or maybe now I just look like an old lady trying too hard to look cool. I just can't win.

I got a kick out of this! Actually, in working with teenagers everyday, I find that a few more of them need more than just a watch. I wore a watch all through high school, so maybe not having one now is just a fad. I've given up trying to even keep track of what is "cool".

if watches are nerdy then I'm okay with being nerdy. We've always had watches. I remember in elementary school I had a cinderella watch. I die without a watch. It completes me. That's so weird those kids said that (said the nerdy lady).
