This Swatch was my major fashion statement for several years, until (as you can see) I wore it out. The design isn’t easy to understand at a casual glance, so people would ask me about it: “Is that a mermaid?””No,” I would explain: “It’s Eve, gathering apples.” (As for the snake, take a close look at the strap…) It goes with my theme song, by Cole Porter from his show, Nymph Errant.
Before you leave these portals
To meet less fortunate mortals,
There’s just one final message
I would give to you.
You all have learned reliance
On the sacred teachings of science,
So I hope through life you never will decline,
In spite of philistine defiance,
To do what all good scientists do:
Make it your motto day and night.
And it will lead you to the light.
The apple on the top of the tree
Is never too high to achieve,
So take an example from Eve –
Though interfering friends may frown.
At each attempt to hold you down.
If this advice you always employ,
The future can offer you infinite joy
And you’ll see…
