Ever watch an episode of Doctor Who?
It’s one of my favorite TV shows. I love it so much I created a board on Pinterest for it. (Hint! Hint! Go take a look at it!)
I love the Doctor’s character. I love all the randomness that spews from his mouth, the odd phrases that make me laugh, and the chaotic running around that doesn’t really amount to much. I love how fun it all is.
My hubby and girls are fans too. Not in the can’t miss an episode (Re-runs, anyone?) or dress like them sort of way, although I wouldn’t protest having the rainbow scarf from the fourth incarnation, Tom Baker, and the leather jacket from the ninth doctor, Christopher Eccleston. Love the jacket!
So sometime last year, my hubby started telling me that I must be related to the Doctor. I took it as a compliment. I mean, who doesn’t want to be thought of as a slightly eccentric genius? Oh yeah!
A few days ago Hubby and I were sitting on the porch, enjoying the last days of summer and talking about how are day was. I was telling him about all the paperwork I was having to do for the LLC, editing of Loving the Goddess of Love, and my current WIP. And he laughingly called me the Queen of Randomness.
I didn’t think much about it until a few days later when someone made a similar remark and it suddenly hit me what Hubby meant. He wasn’t calling me a relation of the Doctor because I like to “run around saving the world” or in a “OMG she’s a brilliant, genius!” sort of way. It was more in WTF are you talking about?!
Think, Doctor Who explaining something and suddenly going off on a tangent about custard and fish sticks only to return to the original topic without warning a few scenes later and losing everyone else because they are already thinking something else. Maybe it’s Attention Deficit Disorder. All I know is my thought process moves faster than my mouth, jumping from one thought to another, easy distracted by the animals, cloud formation, or thought of the Zombie Apocalypse.
Having a conversation with me can lead to all sorts of randomness. This is the reason I’m not a teacher. Too many cool things to distract me. Ask my sister and her friend about the time they asked me about the Revolutionary War and ended up with a lesson on ancient war craft, modern war craft, what lead to the Revolutionary War and what happened after, the early Presidents of the United States, foreign countries who played a part in the Revolutionary War, Waterloo, and the Louisiana Purchase. Not in that order.
Anyone else? Please tell me that I’m not alone. 😀
