Magnetic Fields (not the band)

The magnetic field of my body makes watches stop. It started when I was in my 20’s. I had several watches I really liked (and that was the time of the SWATCHWATCH for you oldtimers) and then one day I noticed the watch had stopped working. I didn’t think much of it, but it kept happening. I finally gave up and chalked it up to me having some freaky chemistry that hated watches. I never ever met anyone else that this happened to.

So today, I was walking with a couple of ladies in my information architecture workshop. We were on break and checking out the spa facilities. We got on the topic of watches because there was a $10 store next to the spa. (gotta love Vegas for these things…) Lisa started to tell a tale of watches breaking and time stopping. Then even stranger, the other women we were walking with also confessed to this time stopping ability.

So i have this weird anomoly, I’ve never met anyone with it besides me and in one day three of us with this special watch breaking/time stopping magnetic field came together. Not only did we come together, but we managed to discover a random detail such as this about one another.

Gosh, the universe is really freakin weird.


  1. My best friend has that issue as well. Her boyfriend bought her a great pocket watch and it stopped that too. When she took it in to be repaired, they said the mechanics were all rusted out.

    Must be the magnetic personality

  2. I have the same issue. Have not worn watches most of my life, because they just stop working. Have lost, misplaced broken many watches.
