Why didn't I think of that?

I was sitting on the sofa with my 8yr old grandson, preparing to read him his 1/2 chapter of Harry Potter before bed. The conversation went as follows:

G - "Grandma, can they cure your arthritis?"

Me - "No, love."

G - "Might they find a cure?"

Me - "They might. It'll be too late for me but very good for people who are just getting it. But they won't be able to fix my hands and things. You can't send it into reverse."

He thought for a moment.

G - "If you got into a time machine you could go back to before you got arthritis and be cured."

I like it.

    Perhaps we could ask Dr Who if we could borrow the TARDIS.

    OK ladies and gents. All aboard the TARDIS. I can't recall which one we're in and we might have to build our own bar and optics but, with a bit of imagination, this could be a fun run.

    Should we bring some tripe? Or will we not need it once we`re cured?

    So true isn't it that saying? "Out of the mouths of babes ..."

    I want to live in this magical land please. Is there room for me in the Tardis?

    It was a more positive thought than the pupi who askd if my crutches would be put in my coffin with me when I die!

    :shock: Not much faith in the resurrection there, Slosh. I've applied for a fully working one next time around :lol:

    OK. The TARDIS will be piloted (if that's the right word) by David Tennant who will double up as our resident GP. (Can't wait for the physical examination :D )

    Dropping off years to be arranged. (At 1961 I think I get him for longest :wink: Phew! I might decide the cure is irrelevant.)

    Shall we have a ceremonial burning of sticks, crutches, rollators, wheelchairs, scooters and all artifical joints?
