Geriatric Relativity

My antique wall clock always seems to need winding, and I always think, "Didn't I just wind that the other day?"

Then I realize it was probably two weeks ago that I last wound it, but it only seems like a few days because times goes faster as you get older. It's the same law of physics that predicts the presence of 10-year-old candy in grandparents' candy dishes.
