This is just a stupid memory from the Sea Org that came to me recently that I thought might be funny to share. Last night I was setting up my new Fitbit, which gives you different options for the clock face. Some are kind of standard digital watch choices, and others display the time/date more creatively. Like the hour in large numbers with the minutes in large numbers below, rather than on the same line. Or the date or seconds are displayed more prominently than the hours or minutes. Anyway, that's not that interesting. But as I was considering my choices, I remembered something I had mostly forgotten from when I was in the Sea Org. I joined when I was 12, so this was... years ago, to say the least. I had a watch when I started the EPF, and of course it along with most of my personal positions was ruined by the end of the EPF from constant work washing pots and pans (more accurately: getting sprayed with a powerful sink sprayer incessantly by the teen boys I was supposed to be "in charge" of in this work camp at age 12). My mom got me some new things so I could pass the final course of the EPF, the Personal Grooming Course, which required having things like clean shoes and feminine hygiene products should you be MATURE enough to menstruate. My mom also got me a new watch. It was just a sport style watch, but what was cool about it to me at the time was that the digital display showed the seconds in HUGE numbers and the hour and minutes in much smaller numbers. I probably thought it was neat because... I was 12. It looked different than what I was used to. I also liked it because my mom gave it to me, and I had a very difficult time being away from home. For the beginning portion of my SO "career," I was working closely with executives of my org. One lady was so freaking intense and scary that it was comical to me, a child. She was like a cartoon. You know, like the big angry dog or whatever? Well she took major issue with my watch and its ABERRATED digital time display. She repeatedly claimed that it was a sign of aberration and "altered importance," to view seconds as more important than hours or minutes. She would become absolutely FURIOUS over it. Eventually she ordered me not to wear it. In honor of that constantly fuming Sea Org exec, I've chosen to have my Fitbit clock face display as "altered importance" as possible.
