Figures

After the car came back from el taller, the dashboard clock was wrong, so she decided to put it right. It read 1314 and it was just past nine in the evening, so she took out a pencil and prodded the appropriate button until it read 2114 instead. It was a painful process, though, one jab at a time: and I wasn't looking forward to her having to go almost all around the clock to get the minutes right. I had a brainwave. "It's OK", I began to say. "If you wait a few minutes it'll have caught up with the clock by then."

A blonde question?...if you poke the button with a pencil...and apply constant pressure does it change up by itself till you let go?...may take a moment to register a continuous prod as it where...

I enjoy your writing Justin but this was not one of your best efforts. Was it really you or have you been hacked?

Ha Ha! Touchy! I'm not registered so I had to tick Other or Anon. Or lie! Glad to see you're back on form though.
