Of course not everyone is among the elite who enjoy the rewards of a random week off in the spring, but if you are a student or, like me, an extremely weary teacher, the prospect of this week tides you over like an unchecked Powerball ticket.
On a relaxing week off of work, the last thing you need to do is have any sort of knowledge of the time. Let the hours and days blend together. Sleep and eat whenever your want. Don't even think about wearing your wristwatch. This is the perfect time to wear jewelry with vintage watch faces! They allow you to enjoy the beauty of a watch face without being hampered by the knowledge that you are eating breakfast at 5 in the afternoon. This telephone dial vintage watch face eases any I-just-slept- for-13- hours-guilt while evoking images of film noir with Barbara Stanwyck lounging by the phone and classic moments such as this:
DOUBLE INDEMNITY (1944)
Phyllis Dietrichson (Barbara Stanwyck), at their first meeting: "There's a speed limit in this state, Mr. Neff. Forty-five miles an hour."
Walter Neff (Fred MacMurray): "How fast was I going, officer?"
Stanwyck: "I'd say around 90."
Neff: "Suppose you get down off your motorcycle and give me a ticket."
Phyllis: "Suppose I let you off with a warning this time"
Neff: "Suppose it doesn't take."
Phyllis: "Suppose I have to whack you over the knuckles."
Neff: "Suppose I bust out crying and put my head on your shoulder."
Phyllis: "Suppose you try putting it on my husband's shoulder."
Neff: "That tears it."
