Prior to our shakedown cruise, Gypsy and I were shopping in the local Camping World and saw an odd clock that marked the days of the week, not the time as usual clocks do. They are called…get this…Day Clocks. We both laughed at it and talked about how we had seen similar things at nursing homes before.
When you first walk into a nursing home you usually see a white chalk board that tells the residents what day it is, the weather outside, and where they are. To see a clock that tracked only the days of the week being sold to RV’ers was odd and funny to us. Why would they sell a clock like this in a RV place? Senile dementia is not something you come across in the RV lifestyle. Those marketing guys sure missed the boat on this product. I bet that Camping World has a surplus of those day clocks that they can’t sell. Hahaha
Well, over four months later we aren’t laughing. Our most common question we now ask each other is, “What day is it?” When you aren’t getting up every day to go to work, you find that you tend to lose track of the days. I don’t know how many times we would go to the bank to do some business inside the bank and find out they are closed because it’s Sunday. “Sunday?”, we would ask each other, “How could it be Sunday? Wasn’t it Wednesday?”
I am beginning to think that those marketing guys in the Camping World weren’t so dumb after all.
Next up…Did we go to the casino?
