clock

Postby bbeeton » Mon Nov 23, 2020 10:35 am

The most frequent meaning of "clock" is "a time-keeping device" (noun); the associated verb means to measure time, or with "in" or "out" to punch a time clock.

A clock is also a decorative device up the side of a stocking.

And as a (probably unrelated) verb, it means to hit hard.

Taken up and treated here.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.
