RB had some extremely irritating habits (such as carefully putting the honey in the refrigerator and leaving the bread wrapper open on the kitchen counter after a midnight snack). All in all, watchmakers do not generally think like any other breed.
Let me explain why I say this. One time when we were considering buying a new car (our old jalopy was up in years), we began shopping the various dealers for new models while we could still drive our trade-in. We finally found one that appealed to us both. It was a sleek, green beauty with all the extras, and I could picture us gliding down the road with the stereo playing one of our favorite tapes, the air conditioner keeping us cool and comfortable, and the cruise control keeping us clipping along at a steady pace.
