OK. Why am I writing about watches?
The reality is guns, cars and watches tend to be very “guy heavy” interests. And some years ago, the subject of, “Wearing your Rolex While Shooting” was a popular topic.
We still get people checking in on the Rolex periodically. I’ve had it for, I think, 23 years and wear it everyday. That is until today.
Back at The Armory I was unloading my vehicle of some range stuff. Since it had rained that day, I took my muddy boots off by the dock. Which left me with sock-feet.
And while walking around the office, I slipped and fell very hard down some stairs. Very hard.
- So hard, people came running out of concern.
- So hard, I should have broken bones.
- So hard, The Rolex was ripped off my arm on the way down.
It goes without saying I am not getting any younger. And with that age comes wisdom. And wisdom suggests…
”Psst! Hey, Buddy. You don’t have too many zero-consequence falls left in life.”
