Loading ...Maybe it’s just one of those things that once you get stuck in your head, you can’t help but notice, kind of like how after you buy a new car you see your make of car everywhere, but lately I’m seeing a proliferation of giant clocks. I’m not talking about outside, like on the corner of a bank, I’m talking in people’s homes, kind of like art, but mostly just like a giant clock. I think I first noticed one on a home show, then on a TV show, then I saw one in Sam’s Club, and now it’s like I’m seeing them everywhere. I know, back in the day people would get some bad artwork for a wall, and maybe there isn’t any bad artwork left, although, I suppose, when you are decorating a house, and the couple has a disagreement on what should be on a wall, a giant clock is an easy compromise. It harkens back to a simpler day when people had clocks in their homes, whether grandfather clocks, that clock in the kitchen, a nice mantle clock, or even that clock blinking “12:00″ on the VCR. Functional, I suppose, in this day and age when it appears less people wear a watch and use their phone to see what time it is, or maybe it’s just because they are cheap. Okay, scratch that, they aren’t that cheap as I just looked and the least expensive one I could find, on a quick search for 30” wall clock, was $70.
We don’t have a giant clock on our wall, although we do have some spots that could probably fit one, but I wonder: Do you own, or know someone who owns, a giant clock?
That’s it for this one! I’m Andy!! L8R!!!
