It’s A Strange New World

It’s just one of those facts of life these days that if you live long enough, something is going to change that makes you realize that you are no longer living in the world you grew up in.  I knew this, and I still never expected to see a shift like this one.

When I was growing up, if you mentioned Doctor Who, the most common response was “Who?”  These days, the most common response, as seeing the 50th Anniversary special in a theater, of all places, last night proved to me, the most common response is “Who!”  There were points last night where I actually couldn’t hear what was being said on the screen over the squealing of fangirls.  We still don’t have hovercars, but we have that now.

I’m not complaining, I just honestly figured I’d see hovercars . . . or an alien invasion . . . or practical time travel . . . long before this day would come.

Go figure.
