Does anybody really know what time it is? Does anybody really care?
Seriously, if I ever asked anybody what time it was and they came back at me with some pseudophilosophical tripe like that, I’d get pretty aggravated, because, yeah, you’d know what damn time it was if you’d look at that watch that you’ve already admitted to wearing. I’ve got a question for ya’. Why are you wearing a watch, anyway? Now, I won’t get violent or anything like that, so fear not hippies, but I won’t be sticking around to hear what the bigger message is supposed to be, so the whole thing ends up being a wasted attempt at getting me to care about whatever deep thought it is you’re having at the moment.
And, after typing that all out, I realize I’m probably the only person in the world who has such a reaction to that song.
