Game Clock

Football on television unnecessarily raises blood pressure.  Watching the seconds tick away in the game inspires comparisons to time and life.  I think of fine watches that break.  Tens of thousands of dollars in value are lost.  Time is lost.

Even if every second could be enjoyed to the fullest, the ticks are finite.  Maybe diet and exercise earn a couple more.  Maybe fate takes them back, and then some.  You never know.

Guess that's why we have distractions.  They help us forget the limited ticks.  Even if some of them steal ticks.
