Ending in a timely fashion

I have a new watch. It’s only a cheap digital resin ‘I want to look like Action Man’ Casio type arrangement BUT it has one brilliant feature. The nifty extra is that it has a countdown timer that will make the watch vibrate when it reaches 00:00. The significance being that when I am given a 10 minute slot at a comedy club I can set it for 9 minutes and once it vibrates I have 1 minute to seal the deal and leave the stage.

You wont be annoyed by an electronic alarm, no …
Not on my watch!

I thought I would flag this tech up as I know a number of people whose Vicars could REALLY use one of these to be able to bring the sermon to a conclusion in a time consistent with some learning, general well being ….. and retaining the congregation’s will to live. (I would however want a small modification made to the Clergy Issue version whereby the watch would also give the final minute indicator if the words “And finally” are used).
