tuesday march 17

today i realized that the old clock radio i use in my bedroom had lost a line. that is, the last digit could no longer produce the connecting line in its top-left corner. by way of example, 5:08 now looks like this:

while i can imagine this becoming a slight annoyance, the fact that it’s the last digit means it will never be that confusing. i mean, it’s not like it’s a huge deal if i think it’s 8:23 instead of 8:29. and the 3 and the 9 are really the only digits i'll mix up, even though sometimes i'll probably wake up and think i'm reading hieroglyphics for a second. besides, where would i even buy another radio that also tells me the time? 1997?
