The title of this post is a little joke for Doctor Who fans. The Doctor’s primary form of transport is the TARDIS which stands for Time And Relative Dimensions In Space. The dimensions of time and space don’t follow expected rules with the TARDIS – it’s able to travel through time and it’s bigger on the inside than it appears on the outside.
Anyone who has moved house will see where I’m going with this. The normal rules of time and space do not apply when you are moving house:
- Every time you think “this will take about another hour” you’ll be lucky if you’re done in six hours.
- Every time you think you have enough boxes it will turn out that you have less than half the number you need.
- And every time you think “this is the last load of stuff I need to cart around to the new place” there will be more fucking stuff that you missed.
And how is it, that even though I’m moving from a smaller place into a bigger place, it seems like all the crap is never going to fit into the new place? It’s all finally in now but it’s piled up all over the house. And I want to put it in order but that’s hard to do because the furniture and storage units aren’t in their proper places but you can’t put the furniture in the right places because of all the goddam boxes!
The only possible answer is that the cosmos itself is against me! The very laws of times and space are being twisted just to screw up my life.
