    Springbar popped over the weekend

    So while carrying my screaming child out of a restaurant and attempting to calm him down, my MM300 fell to the ground and I had to start calming myself down!

    I was walking out and must have hit the door frame but didn't notice. Next thing I knew, I heard a thud from the floor and I had a kid in one hand with no watch on the other. At that moment, everything went quiet and all I could think about was looking for the springbar.

    Thankfully it was on the floor just next to the watch and suddenly having a crying kid didn't seem so important anymore!

    I have a two year old boy who loves a good public meltdown. The latest was yesterday in an international airport. So far, incidents directly attributable to him have just created a lot of beausage scratching but no dings or other major situations like yours. Everytime something happens, yours is the kind of situation I dread and fear is somewhat inevitable.

    Well the good thing is that you noticed, imagine the same story but you didnít realise the watch had popped off your wrist until later that evening.... shudder.

    It would have been hard not to notice that loud thud as it fell to the marble floor! The watch is solid tho, not a scratch on it that wasn't there already

    Jeez. Having just gone through a drop myself, I know that sinking feeling all too well.

    You never close your clasp anymore when I kiss your dial
    And there's no tenderness like before in your fingertips
    You're trying hard not to show it
    But baby, baby I know it

    You lost that springbar feelin'
    Whoa, that springbar' feelin'
    You lost that springbar' feelin'
    Now it's gone, gone, gone, woh



    Now there's no wristwatch look in your eyes when I reach for you
    And now you're starting to criticize little things I do
    It makes me just feel like crying
    'Cause baby, something beautiful's dyin'

    You lost that springbar' feelin'
    Whoa, that springbar' feelin'
    You lost that springbar' feelin'
    Now it's gone, gone, gone, woh


    Baby, baby, I had to get down on my knees for you
    If you would only love me like you used to do, yeah
    We had a love, a love, a love you don't find everyday
    So don't, don't, don't, don't let it slip awayBaby, baby, baby, baby!

    I beg you please, please, please, please
    I need your love, need your love
    I need your love, I need your love
    So bring it on back, so bring it on back
    Bring it on back, bring it on back

    Bring back that springbar' feelin'
    Whoa, that springbar' feelin'
    Bring back that springbar' feelin'
    'Cause it's gone, gone, gone
    And I can't go on, woh


    Bring back that springbar' feelin'
    Whoa, that springbar' feelin'
    Bring back that springbar' feelin'
    'Cause it's gone, gone, gone................
