Time flies.

Whether or not you’re having fun.

Time has its own speed limit.

Which seems to increase as time passes.

When we’re 10, time drags on.

At 10 mph.

When we’re 30, it’s 30 mph.

And ramping up.

By 50, time’s zipping along at 50 mph.

And so forth.

I guess it makes sense that the eyesight goes.

Since it’s all a blur at 80 or 90.

Time rules.

Nature’s stopwatch.

Calling the shots.

Ready, set, go.

Time’s up.

You’re out.

You win a few.

Lose a few.

The old rat race.

Trouble with that is, if you win…

You’re still a rat.

(Lily Tomlin said that.)

The race against time.

Like swimmers in the Olympics.

A tenth of an increment of a whisker of a second can make all the difference.

We measure it out.

We check it.

We try to save time.

But we still lose time.

We waste time.

We ignore the time.

Some of us have killed time.

Clocks keep time.

Jerry Carlman knows all about that.

He has some for sale at Underwood’s Antiques.

Wind ‘em up.

Hear them tock.

And tick.

And bong.

Summertime, the clocks say.

And the livin’ is easy.

Have a good time.

Have fun.

It’s time.

That’s Mason.
