Well, what happened to me yesterday isn't the worst thing I can think of, but it comes close. I was taking off my watch because the dumb thing's not water resistant and I needed to wash my hands. The elastic band that holds the watch together snapped. Pink beads hit the floor and scattered.
Thankfully, I managed not to vent my frustration by swearing, thereby keeping my innocent reputation (Ha!), but I still had over two dozen beads to pick up.
Once done, I went online to look for a new watch. I found one that I liked, but it didn't say what size it was. So, I'm going to Target after work. This time, I'm going back to watches with leather bands. Timex Indiglo, here I come.
