Like Sands Through the ½ Hour Glass? | Shopping & Services
St. Petersburg, Florida -- In 1965, when, “Days of our Lives” first debuted, 'Like sands through the hourglass so are the Days of our Lives,” became a staple of the daytime soap’s opening credits.
It was a beautiful and symbolic phrase. But recently while shopping I found this new, oxymoronic “hourglass” for our speedy, multi-tasking world.
No stress here, just condense the hour glass into a half-hour glass and compress time in a bottle-like container - just as we all try to fit more and more into our busy schedules.
A new time and new time keeper. No stress here right? What comes next – the 15-minute hour glass?
