Everyday Musings, Letters That Matter

Dear Clock

I know, I know. Don’t roll your eyes (or hands probably?) at me. I do remember calling your aide the most hated object in the world. But hear me out this time, okay? Haha! This time? See, I can’t even write a sentence without using you. So we’re kinda inseparable, right?

As much as I dismiss (or dislike?) you, I have to admit that there is truth in the saying Time is money. Now, before you go all I told you so on me, let me also remind you that nobody likes a know-it-all. So, spare the lecture and save us both some time.

Now, moving on to adding some more words of praise to boost your ego. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for being present everywhere.

From the wall in my bedroom and office to being an accessory on my wrist. As if you couldn’t have enough of me already (I can feel those eyes rolling again), you also made your way into my life through all possible devices I have access to, right from my phone to my laptop and even my iPad to my television screen as well.

Everywhere I look, I can’t miss looking at you.

With every glance your way, I remember something important. Right from waking up, to having my meals. And from sticking to my daily schedules and tasks to finally ensuring that I get enough sleep. You make it all possible by your omnipresence in my life.

If not for you, I wouldn’t learn time management. For my ego’s sake, let’s assume that I have mastered this art already and am not haplessly struggling with it every single day. Because this letter, isn’t only about you, it’s about both of us and I deserve some credit too.

I’m gonna end this now because as I look at you at this point, I just realized that it is time for me to call it a day.

See you again tomorrow and every day till I’m living and breathing. Before I sign off, I have a little favor to ask. Since we’re friends now (hopefully), can you ask your aide to be a little less annoying?

Your reluctant admirer and learner.


Thank you for reading.
