Back story first:
Over the past couple weeks, we’ve been having Dr. Who-athons at our house, because, my kids have been watching for a couple years now, and I’d only ever watched with them a couple times. They hate explaining stuff to me, because I’d be lost & confused, so I finally decided to start back at the first episode of the reboot. I may eventually go back & watch the original.. I’d seen some of that as a child with my dad. Tom Baker was truly my first Doctor, and well, you never forget your first Doctor. We’re nearly through last year’s episodes, and will be up to the current season before this week is over. I’ve really enjoyed it, and anytime I question anything that I just don’t see how it’s possible, I’m told, or reminded, wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff. FINE.
This weekend, the following conversation took place, just because we were watching Dr. Who:
Steve: Hah, see, he set fire to the wood, it does wood!
Marissa: No, he just set fire to the cloth.
Me: Well, I set fire to the rain.
Marissa: We were rolling in the deep.
Me: We could have had it all.
Steve: But instead I Skyfall.
We all burst out laughing, and Steve said, “what’s up with all the Adele references?”, and I just said, “I dunno, just kinda happened…” Marissa declared she loves this family & we’re awesome.
Dr. Who, bringing harmony to the world we live in.
Ok, maybe you had to be there.
