Tick, Tock, Fix the Clock

By Beth A. Beutler
1     Grandpa loved clocks. He had lots of them. They were in his basement. Every time I went down the stairs, I would hear a million tick-tock, tick-tocks. On the hour, all kinds of chimes would ring. I loved it down there. Grandpa always let me explore his clocks.
 
2     I remember times when Grandpa would repair clocks. People learned that he liked to work on clocks, so they brought him their broken clocks. I was with him one day when Mrs. Anders brought him one.
 
3     "This clock doesn't run," she said.
 
4     "They aren't supposed to," Grandpa replied with a twinkle in his eye.
 
5     "What?" Mrs. Anders said.
 
6     "They are supposed to keep time, not run. They have no legs."
 
7     Mrs. Anders laughed. I rolled my eyes. I had heard that joke many times before.
 
8     "Seriously," Mrs. Anders continued, "I wind it, but it only keeps time for about four hours. Then it quits."
