Mary's desk, October 9, 2012

Mrs. Bulova: "Hello?"

Mary: "Hi, Mrs. Bulova. This is Mary, at Dr. Grumpy's office. I'm calling because you're 10 minutes late for your appointment, and you're always punctual. So I wanted to make sure everything is okay."

Mrs. Bulova: "That can't be! My appointment is at 2:30, and my watch says it's only 1:15 now!"

Mary: "I'm sorry, but it's actually 2:40. I can re-schedule you, though. Maybe your watch is broken? Or you need to wind it?"

Mrs. Bulova: "It's funny, I noticed last night that it said 1:15 while I was having dinner, and it said the same thing later when I was getting ready for bed, and also this morning, when I woke up. I thought that was weird, but it makes sense now."

It sounds like Mrs. Bulova has more problems than just a broken watch. (Love the name)

But does she know what a time zone is?

This wouldn't be Syndee's mother, would it?

As they say, even a broken watch is right twice a day.

Enter the Twilight Zone where time has no meaning...

"My husband has put on some weight recently, so I figured it was just relativistic effects from his gravitational pull."

There used to be a running joke at a University's radio station about it always being 10:47 because one night the (analog) clock got stuck there and the DJ kept announcing it was 10:47... for hours on end.

Ha! I'll bet Mary never has to call Mrs. Timex (takes a licking and keeps on ticking) about this.

At least she still got the date of her appointment right!

Clearly a neurological problem here.

She definitely needs to see you.

Sounds like her appointment with you was not a moment too soon.
