This is an excerpt from my entry into the Reliable Writers Contest. It came in third.
That clock just does not stop clicking as it moves on, seconds, minutes and sometimes hours escaping our grasp. What happened? We thought we were on track! Oh yeah, that phone call, or was it that ten minute break on FaceBook that turned into sixty minutes? Now you are all up tight, your neck and shoulders feel like they are tied up in knots. All this has given you one major headache and you ask, Why? This feeling can hit a student getting ready for exams, the business person with a deadline looming, and even a mother trying to get the home ready for a special occasion. It does not discriminate.
