Remember the 80s sitcom “ Out of this World “? Evie was half-teenager and half-alien, and had some sweet super powers – not the least of which was pausing time. With one little hand gesture, she could freeze the world around her while she went about her business. I remember wishing I had that power as well – mostly for the ability to get another few hours of sleep before school in the mornings – but, man, what I could do with that ability now.
Imagine all the things that would be possible. I mean, I might finally be able to get my shit together.
There are so many things I want to do – so many books I want to read, so many things around my house I’d like to get done, so many Pinterest pins to get around to. Except with the frenzy that is life – commuting, working, homework helping, lunch packing, dinner making, dish washing, facebooking (let’s be serious) – there is just not enough time in the day.
If only I were Evie and could stop time. I could get all that done – become a better me – and then hit play.
