At The Stroke of Midnight


Today’s daily prompt asks,

Where were you last night when 2012 turned into 2013?
Is that where you’d wanted to be?

What a laugh!  I was where I usually am at midnight on New Year’s Eve – giving my sweetie a kiss as we wish each other a Happy New Year.  And as happens on so many years, we were watching Dr. Who re-runs.  This year was the David Tennant series (2006 to 2009), when he’s between companions, having just left Donna Noble behind.

We’ve been doing this for years.  Once upon a time, it was the Tom Baker series (1974 to 1981), complete with a small child in her pajamas who was fascinated with Dr. Who and his many villains.  Our favorite Dr. Who is Christopher Eccleston (2005), who only had one season.  He was outrageous, brash, and larger-than-life.  He was a thug, not a dandy.  But in the end, we enjoy them all for their individual quirks.

Over the years, we’ve critqued and compared the various Dr. Who’s and their companions.  We’ve laughed, slept, and snacked our way through the various New Year’s Eve’s.  Very few are memorable, but what we remember is each year being here at home, telling each other “I love you”, and starting the year with a kiss.

It doesn’t get much better than that and yes, that’s exactly where I wanted to be!

I don't think it looks comfortable, but he seems to like it.
