If I were an inventor, I would invent a watch that stops time.
It would stop time at the touch of a button. There’d be a dial where you could set how many hours you wanted in your section of paused time. Once you activated the device, all of time would stop but you, and you could walk around in the world in the space of a billionth of a second.
You could do whatever you wanted with that time. You could take a nap. You could work on your novel. You could read the complete works of Emily Dickinson. You could read War and Peace in one sitting, and after you turned time back on, only a portion of a second would have passed.
And if you hold onto someone when you activate the device, then they can enter the time bubble with you. You can spend all the time in the world, and not a moment will have passed at all.
And Friday nights could be longer, instead of passing in the blink of an eye.
Yes. If I were clever, I would invent such a device. But I am not clever in that way. I just write little poems and blog posts about things I wish would happen.
Still, I can dream, can’t I?
