Does time seem to run away from you? I'm never sure where the days go. As a kid I felt the summer days stretch on forever without much distinction. But now it seems hard to hold onto even this morning.
According an NPR story, one theory on why time flies as you get older is that when you're young, you experience everything for the first time and it takes your brain longer to process new encounters. Whether it's the first time you got drunk or kissed someone, it's all new. When you've kissed your hundredth kiss or gotten drunk too many times, you already know what those experiences will feel like. Your mind fills in the blanks. And time goes by ever faster.
Maybe we can keep time on a leash, or on a band. I found a stockpile of watch bands in the garage. What to do with them since they are without their watch faces? They are sadly stuck in limbo.

The bands must have come the gift shop we owned in the early 80s, also the source of the Sex Plug.
