Every once in a while, my wife daydreams about what it would be like if we lived during a different time in history. However, her “creative” interpretation of which historical events actually happened when often prompts her to fact-check with me before launching into said daydream. For example:
Wife: When was World War I?
Me: The 1910s.
Wife: Okay, then I think I could live in the 1920s.
Me: You sure you could handle Prohibition?
Wife: Oh, that was then? Never mind. That’d be stupid.
And so this weekend, while savoring a slice of cheese from a Costco platter, she mused…
Wife: I think I could live in the Old Days. They at least had cheese, right?
Me: I guess that depends which “old days” you’re talking about. Like, what time period?
Wife: I don’t know…like, Game of Thrones days.
Me: You mean the fictional show set in a fictional world and time that we’re watching?
Wife (laughing): Yeah, that time. When dragons and zombies walked the earth. They had cheese then, right?
Me: I would think so.
As it turns out, there “was” cheese in “Game of Thrones days,” and if my wife ever has the opportunity to travel back in time and into a fictional universe, she can rest assured that she’ll have plenty of other cheese enthusiasts to hang out with:
Maybe someday I’ll take her there on a second honeymoon.
