Time Event
If I could save time...
Time has been getting away from me a lot lately, so I finally decided to do something about it. I found a big rubber bucket in the closet, and I left it where I figured the time was most likely to be leaking out. It took a few wrong guesses, but I finally figured it out (there was a crack in the baseboard behind my desk). So now I've got this big bucket full of time.

The problem is, I'm not sure what to do with it. I tried splashing some on my watch (after taking the watch off -- I'm not crazy or anything), and the hands started spinning like mad. When I managed to get it all dried off, it had gone forward about five months (I think -- the calendar part only shows day of the week and day of the month, so I had to work it out by hand based on the difference between the two). I wanted to test it out on a bug, but as soon as the first drop hit it, it vanished.

This is dangerous stuff. I don't even want to handle the bucket, from fear that my fingers will suddenly get all wrinkled and knobby and arthritic if I get too much time on my hands. And what if I get it on my foot or my ankle? I don't want to just pour down the drain where it could ultimately get into the water supply; that seems really irresponsible, even if time is like a river. This whole thing really has me worried. I've got the bucket in the closet right now, with a big sign on the door saying, "DANGER: LOST TIME". But I just noticed that the clock on the wall next to it is running about five minutes fast...
