I love wearing watches. And I freak out if I forget it.

The only thing that stands between a person and what they want in life is the will to try it and the faith to believe it is possible.

I usually wear one...and have since childhood. a cellphone is nice, but it's not always handy when you need the time. A wristwatch is! emoticon

Life is to short to worry about the small stuff. Live life one day at a time and enjoy yourself. Give yourself a few minutes to reflect on the mistakes but look for ways that you can change for the better.

I lost mine about the time I became a stay at home mom and then my smart phone took it's place. I remember feeling very lost without it at first.

I always wear one! I would feel lost without one.

When I do forget, I absentmindedly lift up my wrist to look at the time! LOl!

Funny thing. I have probably 10 different watches but I never wear one. Use to in college and before I was in front of a computer all the time but now I have the big box to tell me the time or my Fitbit or my phone so don't need the extra weight to slow me down!

Lay aside life-harming heaviness and entertain a cheerful disposition.

I have a bunch of watches. I have Gossip watches in every color you can think of but my favorite watches are Joan Rivers'. I have casual ones and dressy ones. Her watches seem to last forever.

I always wear a watch! The few times I've left home without one, I find myself checking my wrist all day.

I have a Seiko that sis gave me many, many, many years ago. It has Eeyore on it. That's what I wear everyday.

I also have a HRM watch that I wear when exercising.

I'm a watch FREAK - just can't afford the ones I really want, like Omega, Tissot, etc...

I wear a Bulova MarineStar watch most of the time. I really love it and bought it for myself for Father's Day 2 years ago. I also have a Timex IronMan sports watch I use mainly on weekends for all the weekend warrior type stuff I do and for running, etc. It's great having a tough watch for the great outdoors!

I kill wristwatches... emoticon

If I wear them the proper way (face out), then they just die (or, in the case of digital ones, go insane). If I wear them facing in, then I tend to smash them when carrying things. Apparently it's genetic, since my Mom and brother have the same problem.

My late husband got tired of me going through watches a few decades ago, and bought me a nurses' watch: a beautiful time-piece that hung from a gold neckchain. It was my "signature" piece of jewellery until it died last year, and I haven't found a replacement for it yet.

I love BK's idea of being "free" of the clock, so maybe that's why I haven't really looked that hard for one... Besides, the Man never takes his off, so I can always ask him for the time if I need to know when we're out and about...

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.

Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. Please don't let fear stop you - cover your butt!

I do not. I feel rebellious like I'm escaping being "tied to the clock" hahaha... besides I can see the time anytime i need to, it's right there on my computer screen.

I would wear one as a "jewelry piece" but i never did care for the feeling of bracelets on my wrist - or watches.

My son (17) LOVES to wear a watch and I guess all the rage these days are really BIG HEAVY watches. I swear it weighs a quarter of a pound lol. But it does look pretty sharp, I will admit.
