Now that Lucy and Emma have started middle school, they have both decided they *must* have a watch so that they are not late to their classes. We thought about just running over to Target and getting them something simple, but then we remembered this gem. Welcome to Middle School girls…where time is of the essence…good luck figuring out when you need to be in Social Studies!
We adore Pinterest. We really do.
Where else can you find a quick tutorial for making biscuits that look like bunnies, a photo of a hedgehog wearing a sombrero, and a flow chart that diagrams all the dance moves in the Thriller video… all in the space of 5 minutes?!
But sometimes, Pinterest, you leave us wondering what went wrong.
Those are the times you give us: Pinterest Nightmares.
Pinterest Nightmare #129: The Tron Inspired Watch
Okay, I’ve never seen the movie Tron. It may be a masterpiece that dynamically melds the worlds of science fiction, action, and drama.
It may be the best Jeff Bridges vehicle filmed in 1982. I don’t know.
But, I do know this: Everyone needs a Tron inspired watch.
Oh sure, scientists may have determined that glow in the dark material is hazardous to your health. Scientists are buzz kills. Maybe I don’t care if radiation causes a 3rd nipple to grow on my wrist. That’s my business.
And really, who needs to be bothered with pesky minute and hour hands on a watch? For crying out loud, are we in the Stone Age here? As long as I leave by semi-circle o’clock, I won’t be late for carpool!
Or you could just fasten on a watch you can actually tell time on so you are not late for your Comic Con Game of Thrones panel. It’s a tough call.
Oh, Pinterest. No…just no.
