future quantum theorist?

awww, pretty quantum stuff

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.

Me:  Oh

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.

  1. Great post. I liked this bit a lot:

    The voice is strong. Great how you call her “The Girl” or “TG.” Do you write fiction as well?

    1. No, i haven’t written any fiction for many many years. I think I’m better at relaying real life. If I was to write fiction, it would have to be based in my own experience.

      Her voice is strong because she is a very strong character. Gives me no end of entertainment 🙂
