future quantum theorist?
So, The Girl just ran out from her bedroom, declaring that she needed to give me ‘the biggest hug in the world’!
She’s hugging me tightly (which is lovely), and murmuring daft things to me about how she loves me more than anything.
TG: I miss you when I’m not with you
Me: But you are with me
TG: I wasn’t in the same room as you
Me: You were only 2 rooms away
TG: But I miss you when I’m not in the same room. Just as much as I do when I’m not in the same building. Or in the same country. Or the same continent. And probably if I wasn’t in the same world. Or even the same universe. Not that I think that is ever likely to happen.
Me: You don’t think you’d ever be in a parallel universe to me?
TG: I don’t think so. I could be at the other end of the universe to you, but if I carried on a bit, I’d just come back to the start anyway.
Me, confused: So you think that if you travel from one end of the universe to the other, you’ll come back to where you started?
TG: yes. Like in PacMan
Me: Aren’t you too young to know about PacMan?
TG: I’ve played it! It still exists, silly.
And with that she runs off.
The Man: She’s right, you know
Me: Ok, so she’s played PacMan. God knows why
TM: No, she’s right about the universe. Current quantum theories believe that if you go to the end, you’d come back to the beginning.
TM: Is she SURE she just wants to be a weather girl?
I reckon they’re both just making it up to make me feel stupid.
