“A watch?” I question.

“It’s a spacechrome,” he replies frankly, “There is a big difference.”

“Oh really…” I say scratching my head.

“The guy who sold it to me said it is one of the biggest developments of the century.” I look at him with my eyebrow raised, waiting, “It…it…is a sophisticated piece of equipment that measures the earth’s movement around its axis.”


“Well, an alarm goes off every-time the earth has gone around a full time!” His eyes are wide with amazement and he puts the gizmo closer for me to look at, “Isn’t it amazing?”

“How much did you buy this for?” I ask.

“A slim $150,” he says, nodding in satisfaction.
