Time Travel- I wish!

Hello everyone! I've made it home to Missouri! Yay! I drove straight through. After 16 hours in the car with a teenager and two dogs, I can honestly say I was glad to arrive. Unfortunately, I'm staying with my mom, who lives where high-speed internet is not available, ugh!!! So, I'm using dial up. Slow, slow, slow. Which brings me to my point of today's blog. Time travel. Oh, I so wish it was available to us mortals. I'm not just talking about another time period, 16 hours is fine with me. :D

If it was possible, I would have skipped those hours in the car and just popped here magically. That would have been wonderful. Let me tell you a little about myself here for a moment. I can't just get in my car and drive. Oh, no. I have something ingrained in me that says if I'm in the car, I have to play my radio and sing along. Shhh. Don't tell anyone my little secret. At any rate, for 16 hours, I sang along with my favorite tunes, and there are many. Many different artists and genres of music piped through my speakers on the way home. By the time I got here, needless to say, I was hoarse. The singing served two purposes for me, other than the ingrained problem I mentioned before. First, it helped to keep me entertained on the boring, dark highway, considering I left at midnight. And second, it helped keep me awake. But it was fun, made the trip much better for me. However, if time travel had been available, that would have been the way to go. I wonder if music is allowed during time travel? Hmmm.

Anyway, it would also be wonderful if I could just pop here and visit for a while, then pop back to my apartment at night. (Where there is high-speed internet just waiting for me). I could sleep in my own bed and be comfortable. Actually, I wouldn't have had to wait 3 months to come back to visit. And I wouldn't have gotten attacked as soon as I walked in the door. :D I'd be able to pop back and forth as much as I wanted to. Wouldn't that be nice?

I'd have to wonder, though, would the time travel highways become congested with travelers during the holidays? Would there be lines of people hoping not to have their "flight" cancelled? Would it just be another form of transportation for all of us? I don't know, but it would at least be something to explore.

Right now I'd settle for traveling by flue powder. As long as I didn't end up where Harry Potter did, that is. Enunciate! That's the trick, they say. Ah, well, I guess I can dream.

I wonder if time travel will ever be possible. I'm sure somewhere out there, someone does believe it exists right now. Personally, I don't, but hey what do I know? If you do know of it's existence, let me know. It could really save me on the way back. :D

What do you think? Do you believe in time travel? Do you think it's possible? Someday? Leave a comment and let me know what you think. Encouragement is welcome.

I hope everyone has a happy holiday season!

I love the idea of Time Travel!! I would visit the kings and queens of the past. I'll avoid the time when my husband was still in college dating--I'm a very jealous person. LOL

"Anyway, it would also be wonderful if I could just pop here and visit for a while, then pop back to my apartment at night."

Uhm, If you get a hold of a time travel machine, you can pop in my kitchen. Not in my bedroom, okay?
Go to Gracen and Sarah's. LOL

Sarah Mäkelä said...

LOL! Don't come to my bed room either! I think teleporting would be better for travel, then you wouldn't have to worry about losing time. It'd be instant travel. :D Time travel would be great for going back in time or traveling to the future! Woohoo! I'd prefer going back in time to traveling to the future, btw.

Besides, Tierney probably cooks up a lot of loving in the kitchen as much as the bedroom, so you wouldn't have to worry about where you go in T's house. Bwahahaha!

hehe It would be fun, though. But I think the instant transporter idea works better for me.

Sierra Wolfe said...

Thanks for the comments. Yes, instant transporter is a better idea. Unfortunately, I couldn't think of what else to call it so I went with time travel. LOL.

I think "teleport" is the word you're looking for here. . .true teleportation, to my knowledge, has not yet been achieved. I would love it if it was. . .it'd be a nice way around rush hour traffic *s* then again, i'd just be facing long lines at the teleporter. . .

Gracen Miller said...

Sierra, I'd love to time travel too. I think it'd be fun and exciting. I'd want to visit the past and the future...not my future, but hundreds of years into the future. Hmm....this could make for a very interesting storyline.

Teleporting would be awesome too! It would make traveling with my boys soooooooo much easier. ;-) What a fantasy not to have to hear..."Are we there yet?" Grrr....
