I know I can't tell time. But I thought I was getting better at it, being more careful when reading my watch, taking a few extra seconds to make sure I was reading it correctly. Nope. I can not tell time to save my life.
I was very very late for work the past few days - not b/c I can't tell time. My alarm clock appears to be broken - i.e. I forgot to set it. Today, miracle of miracles, I woke up on time. I was even able to catch the earlier bus. I'm so proud of myself. I got on the bus and fell asleep like I always do. All of a sudden, I heard the bus driver yelling at someone to "use your turn can't just cut someone off like that.....I can't back up....." This whole thing took some time and then the bus driver announced that he's behind schedule and I'm thinking "man alive! I'm late again! I can't catch a break". I looked at my watch and I swear it said 9:00 2 stops before my stop. I stared at my watch intently and I saw the hour hand on the 9 and the minute hand on the 12 and I swear it said 9:00 at 2 stops before I would get off. I thought of calling my boss and telling him that it's not my fault this time. Thank God I didn't because I got off the bus, sprinted in to my building, looked at my cell phone and saw that it said 8:50am.

No...Really....What time is it?!

I have serious clock reading issues. At first, I thought it was just with analogue clocks, ya know, the kind with the face and the hands. I thought I just had trouble figuring out where the hands are pointing.
Apparently I can't read digital clocks either. I thought it was 11:30 when it is really 10:30. Well, I must be right b/c somewhere in the world it's 10:30. So I'm not soo bad off.

What time is it??

Arona can not tell time. That is why Arona should never wear a watch with a face! Only digital!

Every morning, I set my radio alarm for somewhere between 6:30 and 7 a.m. depending on the day and if I need to do something in the morning. Every morning I wake up between 7:30 and 7:50 and end up sprinting out the door. Yesterday morning was no different. I woke up to my radio, I looked at my analogue watch and saw that the minute hand was on the number 10. I naturally assumed it was 7:50, said my usual "oh crap!", ran to the bathroom, threw on clothes, grabbed my jacket, and ran out the door. I got to the bus stop and the other dude who is usually there was not but there were other people around. I didn't really think that was weird. But then I picked up my cell phone to put it on silent and I saw that the time on the display - in big numbers - said 7:04 a.m. 7:04??? That can't be right. I called my roommate and I asked her what time it is. She said "it's 7 o'clock. what's the matter?" And once again muttered to myself "oh crap!" and got on the bus that of course was right there. I was an hour early to work yesterday.

One would think that I would learn my lesson. I woke up today,
again at 10 to 7, I looked at my watch, thinking it was 10 to 8, almost got out of bed and made my usual sprint for the bus. But I caught myself. I looked at my digital clock this morning, saw it was only 10 to 7 and rolled over and went back to bed. Then I woke up at 10 to 8 for real and realized I was about to be late so I ran.

The moral of the story is Arona needs more sleep....shocker.....
