My favourite watch

My second mom gave me a really cute watch in 1990. The second hand has a little mouse on the end of it. So the mouse goes round and round the dial, and it looks like the cat is chasing it.

In 1994 I was mugged and said watch was ripped from my arm. The mugger took one close look at it and threw it back at me because he didn’t want it.

Well, the joke’s on the mugger because here I am wearing it in 1994

and here it is now, after having another strap put on – I think I am on my fourth strap now! Next year it will be 30 years old.
