My watch has been lying peacefully on the shelf for years already.. I think the last time i wear it was something like 2 years ago. Why so? Cos it's so inconvenient to wear watches at work. Especially when there's the need to scrub up & perform procedures under strict aseptic techniques like giving spinal or epidural or setting central venous lines or arterial lines or taking blood cultures. But somehow, i picked up the watch & wear it today before going to church.
Previously, i have to take off my watch a couple of times each time before i wash my hands & scrub up.. So to save the trouble, i finally kick off my habit of wearing watch up to today. No rings and bracelets as well :) One of my colleagues, in fact, lost her diamond ring when she take off the ring before scrubbing up.. :(
There's clocks available in strategic locations inside the operating theatres & ICU if i need to know the time. My nokia handphone besides serving the purpose of communication tool, it acts as my reliable alarm clock & watch as well :)
