“What time is it?”

“Two hairs past a freckle.”


“Two hairs past a freckle.”


“I’m not wearing a watch, you see.”


“So I looked at my wrist, where a watch would be, and saw a couple of hairs net to a freckle… so I said ‘two hairs past a freckle’. You know?”

“Oh right.”


“…So can you check your phone, or something?”

“Sure… it’s 2:30.”
