Two Reasons I Do Not Remove My Watch

>> Wednesday, August 13, 2008

#1: My nasty watch tan line (my best one in years):

#2: The science experiment growing between the bands of my watch:

Ewwwwwww! I’d rather not know what’s growing on my watch. Unless it can cure cancer. Maybe I’ve been carrying the cure to cancer on my arm for the last year. Or maybe it’s just a flesh-eating parasite. I guess time will tell.

Sweet photo Steve of the inside of your watch band :-) electrolyte deposits in a parasitic form? the tan lines look awesome as ever also as we hit the peak of the summertime heat!

Does your watch tell time in five different time zones? Yikes, that's a very large white spot that the face of your watch covers. No wonder some strange fungi wants to move in!

sunshine 8:49 AM, August 13, 2008  

mmmm.... flesh eating parasite... So glad I chose to read your blog while eating breakfast. :)

Jess 9:20 AM, August 13, 2008  

That second pic kinda made me throw up a little. Thanks.

I used to have a canvas watch band. That thing would get foul!

Jess 9:39 AM, August 13, 2008  

Wow check out that tan haha!

Unknown 9:49 AM, August 13, 2008  

Uh, it's ok to wash that band once in a while ..... just saying.
Or maybe it's your lucky watch?

E 9:49 AM, August 13, 2008  

I would be very scared of what is growing on that watch band!

Sonia 10:00 AM, August 13, 2008  

OMG! I am incredibly disgusted and impressed at the same time lol

You are a walking germ!!! :-)

Brian 10:14 AM, August 13, 2008  

can you rename your blog to 'don't read during lunch or for that matter whenever you are eating'

Silly me, i should have known better.

21stCenturyMom 10:18 AM, August 13, 2008  

EW! Today's hint - it's okay to wash the watch band once in a while. Trust me.

K 10:36 AM, August 13, 2008  

No need for salt tabs. Just lick the inside of your watch.

Formulaic 11:42 AM, August 13, 2008  

Quick lick it! Does it taste good?

Are you seeing pretty colors?

Not the cure for cancer, but defintely the cure for a bad day!

Lisa 12:41 PM, August 13, 2008  

grody! you think Steve in a speedo is gross... this is was nastier!

jen 1:06 PM, August 13, 2008  


I caught my husband washing his watch the other day with the sponge I use to wash dishes. :( I almost puked. Then I said "here, do mine."

Iron Girl Nyhus 1:12 PM, August 13, 2008  

That is so gross... please wash that.

Katelin 1:36 PM, August 13, 2008  

oh wow that is pretty rancid, haha.

CoachLiz 2:25 PM, August 13, 2008  

Praise Jesus that there is someone else who has a huge watch tan and a grody to the max watch band. I thought that I was the only one and that is why I kept it a secret.

Hey, just imagine what a watch tan of your size looks like on a little tiny girl wrist. I am able to touch all of my fingers to my thumb around my wrist. My tan line is freakin' huge! LOL

Alisa 3:20 PM, August 13, 2008  

I'm so paranoid about getting a watch tan line that I change my garmin from side-to-side every two miles on runs 6 miles or longer. Is that pathetic or what? (Maybe not pathetic, vain, maybe?)

Anonymous,  3:52 PM, August 13, 2008  

yuck! take a little rubbing alcohol to the inside of that watch band, do something stronger than washing!

JT 4:27 PM, August 13, 2008  

My watches start to look like that. Then I wipe them clean!

JenC 4:38 PM, August 13, 2008  

Does it smell as bad as it looks? Yikes!

Judi 6:09 PM, August 13, 2008  

EWWWW. I dare you to lick it. I bet it tastes like salt.

chia 6:24 PM, August 13, 2008  

Arm Herpes. Yup. Definitely arm herpes.


Kevin 7:35 PM, August 13, 2008  

eeew. You may want to have that watch cultured to make sure it isnt some rare flesh eating bacteria

Tyger Lily 7:52 PM, August 13, 2008  

Yikes! Makes me miss the bloody toe blister pictures!

teacherwoman 8:11 PM, August 13, 2008  

The first pic... hilarious...

second pic ... yuck!


Kelly 8:32 PM, August 13, 2008  

That stuff on your band looks like parmesan cheese. Maybe you are a growing a delicious pasta dinner under there!

Unknown 8:42 PM, August 13, 2008  

Hate to tell you, but my watch tan is even sweeter, because I've got a groovy bike gloce tanline above it.

Brian 8:46 PM, August 13, 2008  

Def. some of the funniest comments I've read. Kelly's was the worst of the past dinner with parmasean cheese.

Ryan 9:24 PM, August 13, 2008  

Wow, I didn't know you were White.


You're really white!

RoadBunner 9:34 PM, August 13, 2008  

My watch tan line (though not as impressive) is quite large because I have a Garmin 305 and very small wrists. That second picture is pretty gross!

TRI-ROB 11:50 PM, August 13, 2008  

I was kinda hoping that this was a "Scratch 'n Sniff" post. Dang it! It's NOT!


Unknown 8:19 AM, August 14, 2008  

Quick!! Put it back on. The tan line is blending!

Marcy 8:23 AM, August 14, 2008  

Dude I won't even say what that looks like :P

Anonymous,  9:29 AM, August 14, 2008  

I am going to say something gross, so if you don't like gross or are easily offended - STOP READING!

Here is my prediction of what that 'stuff' is...

If we break it down into pieces we start with..

1) the watch is on your left hand - btw love the tan line

2) we all know that the left hand on men is predominantly used to uh-um - should I say...spank the monkey, choke the weasel, etc. You get the point.

3) hence the residue inside of your watch is the left over 'man-love' that you didn't realize was there

So it may be a combo of salt from your workouts, but lets be honest with each other :) what is it really?

No one will ever know. :) So I say TASTE it, smell it, lick it, and give this group an update.

:) Gross, but just keeping it real.

Liz 5:41 PM, August 14, 2008  

I'm sure it's salt...

You should lick it just to be on the safe side.

J~Mom 6:52 PM, August 14, 2008  

Oh man Steve that really takes the cake. Clearly that is shaving gel from all that body shaving. :>P
