#12 Time Traveler
The other day I unpacked a box and discovered it contained unused, unopened wedding gifts. I don’t know what I was thinking when I packed them up years ago.
But inside the box was a minor miracle.
This clock, despite sitting in the box all these years, is still TICKING. And CHIMING in a soft tone every fifteen minutes.
I can’t get over the idea that this clock has been sitting in a box all by itself, all those years, marking all those hours and minutes.
I don’t remember who gave this wedding gift. And I don’t know how long this clock has been ticking–either 14 years or 30 years. That depends on whether it was a gift for my first or second wedding. It’s really tacky to admit this, but I have no clue.
(clock, about 7 inches high)
(poll closes January 16)
