I need to borrow the TARDIS!
Here in the UK, tomorrow is just another Thursday. My friends in the States, however, will be celebrating Thanksgiving and I would love to be there with them. I can eat, drink, be merry - and thankful - with the best of them. Truly! I have a lot to be thankful for - a healthy family, the best dogs in the world, being paid to do the job I love … and that’s just for starters.
As a writer, I spend a large chunk of my time daydreaming and one that takes up a lot of time is deciding where I would go if I could borrow Dr. Who’s TARDIS for the day.
Given the TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimension In Space), I’d be crossing the pond tomorrow to help my friends celebrate Thanksgiving. I’d nip off to Lapland for Christmas, and I’d get there early to make sure Santa knows I’ve been really, really exceptionally good this year. I’d be crossing the pond again to welcome in 2014 in Times Square. Valentine’s Day would be spent in Paris or Venice. I’d be in Dublin for St. Patrick’s Day.
Today’s destination is a tough one. Being high up in the Arctic Circle looking out for the aurora borealis is appealing. On the other hand, I’ve walked the dogs in the freezing temperatures of Lancashire, the logs are burning in the grate, there’s a bottle of wine with my name on it within pouring distance, all is warm and comfortable - so maybe, just maybe, I’d stay home.
What about you? If you could borrow Dr Who’s TARDIS, where would you go?
Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends in the US. Eat some turkey for me!
