Friday Facts- February 24, 2012- Horology

I know where some of your minds went when you saw this title. But, nope, that’s not what this word means!

Horology is the science of measuring time and/or the art of making timepieces. Horologists are people who make watches and clocks or collect them. So, if you’re ever at a party and want to get a shocked look from someone, tell them you’re a horologist and wait for the gasp. LOL!

By the way, I was interviewed here: http://suzannepurvis.blogspot.com/ about writing short vs. long. Come by and keep me company.

  1. I think I like this word. Interesting. Does it have anything to do with the god Horus?

  2. I’m snickering over here, but then you probably figured I would. Great Friday fact!

    • Yep! That first sentence, I had you in mind. Lol.

  3. My dad collects clocks. I wonder what he would think if I called him that? LOL I like the photo you used.

    • hehehe. That would be fun- let me know what he says. I love old watches.

  4. Yep I would have put another meaning on that word and sadly would have thought it was correct so wouldn’t have looked it up.

    • HEHEHE! That cracks me up, Lavada. Throw it out there at a party sometime.

  5. Great Friday Fact. I had no idea.
