I Need A Fist Bump!

"The fist bump gesture is performed when two participants each form a closed fist with one hand and then lightly tap the front of their fists together. The participants' fists may be either vertically-oriented (perpendicular to the ground) or horizontally-oriented. Unlike the standard handshake, which is typically performed only with each participants' right hand, a fist bump may be comfortably performed using the left hand of one participant and the right hand of another, which is convenient if one's right hand is holding an item or otherwise preoccupied." (wikipedia)

Which is awesome because lately my right hand has been preoccupied with this:

Oh YEEEAAAHH that's right! KA-POW!!! It's a ring watch! It showed up in the mail the other day in a package from my grandmother, who must have realized how much more convenient it would be to check the time on my finger instead of my wrist. It's my new favorite toy. Seriously! Look how amazingly useful my bling-y ring watch has been so far!

Is it time for a cookie? Yes. Yes it is.

I can now teach Katie the alphabet and how to read a clock all at the same time!

I never spend too much time visiting Mabel in the garden anymore.

I also used to waste precious seconds by glancing at my wrist watch while solving Katie's plastic slide-y puzzles. Not anymore thanks to my RING WATCH!

I'll stop now because I'm starting to sound like an annoying infomercial (Yours for the low LOW price of $59.95!) and I'm fighting the urge to make this post into one while writing in a horribly fake red-neck accent*. And, I'm sure, sugar honey, ya' all don't be wantin' to hear all that, now do ya'?

Plus, I don't want my wrist watch to get jealous.

*I should so share some of my essays from jr. high, or high school, or, um,well, college.... Because, there's nothing anyone likes better than reading a five paragraph essay comparing and contrasting the use of imagery in selected poems by Emily Dickinson in the voices of Billy Bob and Bubba Joe, am I right?


Due to the overwhelming comments on this post of "Where can I get my OWN ring watch? I want to be the FIRST in my neighborhood to own one this summer!!" I created some links to help you guys get the Have To Own accessory of the summer! Plus, in case you were wondering how cool a ring watch really is you can see Matt Frewer flip one open in Episode 9 of Season 5 on Star Trek: TNG. Happy shopping!**
