This is another one of my fictional allotment characters for you to enjoy. I am sure you know somebody like him?
Mr Tick Tock. He is retired but hates all this free leisure time. Tick tock can not adjust and change like the hands on his time pieces. Did you change your clocks? Tick tock spend forty years of his life working in a factory watching the time. One day he retired and all his colleagues had a whip round and bought him a gold clock or rather wrist watch. Every time he looks at his watch he can think of WORK!
Mr Tick Tock arises at seven O'clock every morning. He makes a Thermos flask and some cheese and tomato sandwiches. He's been eating the same sandwiches every day for the last forty years. He can't complain though it's him who makes them!
Mr Tick Tock cycles to his allotment and works on his allotment until it's 10 O'clock and then he looks at his watch and says:
"Is that the time?"
Next time (no pun intended) I will talk about that other allotment creature - Mr Shed Man.
