In a convent in Tibet...

Another year passes by and the first one says “But I just told you that we have black tea only”. Yet another year passes by and the head monarch, the very wise Lama Thamthog, shouts down from the top floor “If you two don’t stop arguing I am going to throw you both out.”
We may have the watches but it is they who have the time (also in Tahiti the same thing is said)
