Time

Time stopped for a little while today. I was sitting at a café on the edge of a lake. Book in hand, croissant in belly, coffee in between. The book I had was about time and death and war and fate. I finished the book in what seemed a moment frozen. When I checked the time on my phone, it really had frozen. Stuck at 12:17pm. I opened the phone casing and removed the battery, determined to bring my phone to my watch’s reality. When I did so I realized that the emptiness that was there as I was reading had suddenly disappeared. The 3:48pm sun made me squint. I was back in now. My phone decided to agree with my watch. Who was to say that my phone was wrong? Who was to say that my watch was correct. Is correct? Watch, phone, sun, with no one to tell the difference.
