Thread: What am I wearing today...

  1. #1

    What am I wearing today...

    Well, on Sunday (when I was gone) the evercareful USPS managed to precisely fit a box in my mailbox. On Tuesday (upon my return) I saw it but could not extract it because the hole on MY side is about 1/4 inch smaller than the hole on THEIR side. So I had to wait until he returned. Heck, I couldn't even see who/where it was from. But I suspected it was from North Pole and Santa Sherry(OK, Canada, but that's close enough).

    Gotta admit, upon opening it I was floored. The Orient I won was without blemish and even came all tucked inside a like new Orient box! And the 'bonus' Casio looks unworn as well!

    So I just don't know what to wear the rest of the day-

    do I go for suave and worldly:

    Orient.jpg


    or cerebral and professorial

    Casio.jpg

    Such a dilemma.

    Thanks Sherry - they truly exceeded my wildest expectations!

    That Orient is pretty sweet looking! I'm not sure how I feel about the calculator watch, but when I was 5 I totally wanted one.

    Only 5?
    I think I was 19/20. Wanted one in college, I was a 'science' major and needed a calculator like a fish needs water. My rechargeable TI would frequently die and I dreamed of having one of these as a back up/ light duty calculator. It's actually pretty cool.

    I was probably 5 when you were 19 or 20.

    When I was 20, I desperately wanted a Corum Bubble Diver Sharkbomber. Still do.
