An unnaturally long 8:32 am

In the morning, I look at the second counter of the digital microwave clock at what must be the very moment after it has become one second until the very moment before it has become the next second, which has for some reason given the impression of it being an unnaturally long second.

In the afternoon, the same effect, first with a car’s blinker, then with a woman’s eyes. Then a similar effect the following morning: three clocks, each set a bit later than the next, viewed in succession, so that 8:32 AM seemed somewhat over two minutes long.
