Time has stopped

Thursday 18 August 2011, 2.05pm HKT

Home, 1.49pm local time (GMT+8 hours)

I’m starting to get an eery feeling.

All the clocks and wristwatches at home have stopped working.

The fob watch on the desk has stopped at 10.45.

The wall clock in the living room has stopped at 1.51.

The three other wristwatches in the drawer have stopped at 12.24, 12.31 and 1.36.

The wristwatch I’m wearing right now (the one that’s valued at $38K) is the only one that continues to work, but very slowly, now indicating 10.11, about three hours behind real time.

I can appreciate the quality and German workmanship of the still-functioning wristwatch, but I kind of appreciate it more if this scary thing isn’t happening.

    Don’t scare me. I’m fainthearted.

    Time — an objective reality with an almost completely subjective meaning.
