It goes something like this :how do you explain to the family about your watch collection?
Do they get mad? what about your wife?
I am going to try your method in breaking the news to the family. I am currently keeping my watches in secret. I buy watches covertly like CIA mission to Pakistan.It goes something like this :
OkeefenokeeJoe: Family .... I've gathered you here together to tell you something .... I collect watches, and I have a watch collection. uuuum ... Thank you.
Family Member #1: OMG! (and promptly faints)
Family Member #2: HEATHEN!
Family Member #3: AFTER ALL WE'VE DONE FOR YOU ... YOU'VE KEPT THIS A SECRET FROM US ALL THIS TIME ... I JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK!
MamaJoe (on the telephone): Lucille, call Marvene and the other ladies in the quiltin' circle .... we need to meet down to the church right away fer prayer .... Oak's dun told us all he has a watch collection ... I carried him in my belly for nine months and my heart is just broke in hafe.
That's how it's done, Brother Sito.
