It seems to be a growing trend these days to have a watch you can’t read. Hell, I know that I would like one on occasion. In fact, it would help with those awkward silence moments on first dates. Ben doesn’t have this problem as he’s not a swingin bachelor anymore. But not all of us are that lucky. Scene: First date. Out to dinner. Ice is broken but conversation is slowing.
Boy – So…are you…uh…enjoying your mojito?
Girl – Eh, it’s okay. I’ve had better.
Boy – …..I see. Um, hmmm. What, on the menu, looks good?
Girl – I dont know. Anything I guess. I’m not all that hungry.
Boy – Good thing we came to dinner, then, huh? (nervous chuckle)
Girl – I guess…

Girl – It’s okay….OH WOW!!!! Look at that watch! Let’s go back to my place!
