Yesterday, right before I got to work, a woman stopped me to ask if I knew the time. So I looked at my watch and said, "It's about 3 minutes to 7." She kinda laughed and said, "A watch. How quaint. Thank you."
So I've decided that, going forward, if someone asks me the time again, I'll say, "Good neighbor, as I gaze upon the small timepiece upon mine wrist, it doth say to me that it is nearly seven of the clock this morn."
You want quaint, I'll give you quaint. 😀
