#bloganuary: Where’s My TARDIS?

Today’s prompt: What is something you wish you knew how to do?

I went through the usual list of things I can’t do that I wished I could, and decided that, if I were able to travel backward in time, I’d be able to buy myself the time to do all of the things I wanted to know how to do. I’d also have been able to do something about the conditions (obesity and the high blood pressure it caused) that led to my stroke, and a few other physical and psychological issues that I’m sure kept me from learning the stuff I wish I knew.

So, "the secret of time travel" is the thing I wish I knew.

How about you?

  1. I always wished I could dance like Fred Astaire or Gene Kelly. I guess I should pick Cyd Charisse and Ginger Rogers. All that was offered near me was the typical baton twirling and tap dancing that you would see on Tiny Talent Time. A blecchy Canadian show that was on for years showcasing kids and their talents. I wanted ballroom dancing!


  2. I would have loved to learn how to play the guitar. I bought a guitar and played a little when I was in college but never was really good at it.


    1. You’re never good when you start. I played a lot and was pretty good, but nowhere near the level of Chet Atkins or Barney Kessel. It took them literally years to master it at their level. There was a time that I could have put in the amount of hours it takes to play at that level….


  3. Time travel is definitely something I wish for–not so much to change things (which logically doesn’t seem possible), but to be a time tourist and just see what things were like. Even going back to the earlier times of my own life would be cool just to see if things really were as good (or bad) as I remember them now.

    Something more realistic would be to know how to play keyboard and be able to score music. I should have paid more attention in my music classes when I was young.

    1. The whole time we lived in Chicago and some of the time we lived here, Mary had a piano (and an organ) that she rarely played, and I never had any interest. Now that they’re gone, I’m interested. I know how you feel..


  4. I would love to be able to skate! It’s so graceful (both ice skating and rollerblading), though not when I do it. I’d need a completely different body though ~ one without balance issues, weak ankles, and sciatica/arthritis (which makes falling especially terrifying). I am so envious of people swooping down the beach path on skates and also those beautiful ice skating routines on tv…
