Me & My Muse – Day 1233: Saying Goodbye

Is this goodbye for good?  No.  I’m not talking about that goodbye.  I’m talking about saying goodbye to someone at work.

Today marks another major milestone at work.  Someone who has worked there for quite a while is working their last shift today.  Unlike before, I won’t be closing with them like I closed with another person who left our store in July of last year.  Since I pretty much work opening shifts now, I bid my farewell to them when they arrived, which was coincidentally when I was ending my shift.  They contributed a lot to the store, and I will really miss them.

With Thanksgiving in just two days, I’m beginning to coast.  I eagerly anticipate the food.  I greatly look forward to the warm gathering of family.

Today, I worked my morning shift and said goodbye to the person that was leaving.  I then came home after calling Compucom.  I plan on buying a laptop so I wanted to get some extra information from them.

I think it’s time to end this…



No…We are not going to deal with this story arc right now.  Wait!  Didn’t the Doctor say something about freezing time and removing this planet from the timeline?

*closes eyes and has a flashback*

The Doctor:  Don’t worry about Thanksgiving.  I can freeze time and extract all of us and this planet from this timeline.  It has a temporary effect, so it would only last a few days.

Let’s see.  How do I do this?  I would like to use my One Privilege, but I would like to bypass the Dark Muse’s knowledge of me using it.  That’s it!  I’ll use The Doctor’s TARDIS!

*teleports to The Doctor’s TARDIS*

How do I use this?  One Privilege, give me the knowledge of using his TARDIS!

*body flashes and then the TARDIS flashes*

Ahh…It’s that simple, huh?  Well, I guess it would be simple to me now that I have The Doctor’s knowledge on how to use this flying box…

Okay…It will be alright.  You can trust me…

*TARDIS flashes, and begins emanating a powerful light that begins to cover the entire horizon*

It needs more power.

*presses a few levers, which increases the power of the TARDIS*

There.  Freeze time!  There.  Now to extract this planet from this timeline…

*TARDIS flashes with the planet Earth and vanishes from existence*

There.  We are out of the timeline for a few days.  Time will proceed as normal, but in its own fixed loop.  All things on Earth are normal again. One Privilege, ENGAGE!


The Doctor:  You did it!  Didn’t you?


*The Doctor looks at various different screens*

The Doctor:  I see.  You took us out of the timeline?  I’ll need to remember to bring us back after Monday.  Otherwise, Tuesday through Monday, these same seven days, will keep repeating in an infinite loop!  Think Groundhog Day only you get an extra six days!

Try Groundhog Week.

Muse:  Indeed.  I’m going to take it easy.  No story arc until Tuesday.  That should be nice.  Back to MY TARDIS.

*Muse teleports back to her pink TARDIS*

The Doctor:  Thanks for bringing us here.  I was going to do it, but I was a helpless infant…

It’s okay.  Your TARDIS trusted me.

The Doctor:  It had to.  I couldn’t operate it.  It had to pick someone else.  It chose you.  An excellent choice.

I’m now going to take it easy.

The Doctor:  Go ahead.  I was just going to get out my guitar…


*teleports outside of The Doctor’s TARDIS*

Time to end this now.  Just one more day of work left until I can enjoy Thanksgiving.

Today’s high is going to be 36 degrees and the silver lining is having the rest of this day off.

To those of you who are looking forward to Thanksgiving, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Time to get some reading done.  I’m a little behind so I better get started…
