There’s a musical clock in my parents’ house (in which I still reside, whoa whoa, adulthood) that plays the same song when the time hits the hour. The song it plays is Are You Lonesome Tonight?, famously covered by one Mr. Elvis Presley. Though this is the instrumental version…thanks goodness, but barely. I’m just saying it makes for some pensive moments.
What a masochist of a clockmaker. Clockmakers still exist, right? Otherwise, I would cringe to work in the factory that produces these bad boys. People would just use their lunch breaks to whimper and, at the end of the day, they’d punch out their tears.
