When am I?

On Saturday, I texted my friend Molly: If you're here tomorrow, come over to my house for games and beer.

She texted back: What time? Can Chris come?

I replied: 6pm. Chris is always welcome at the Wheaton Secret Headquarters!

Yesterday, while we were at my friend's house for his birthday dinner, Molly texted Anne to find out where we were.

"Did you tell Molly and Chris to come over today?" She asked.

"No, I said Monday, when Robert is coming over."

"She thinks it's today."

I pulled my phone out of my pocket and looked back through my text messages.

"…um." I said.

"You'd better call her," Anne said.

I called Molly and explained to her that my stupid brain thought Saturday was Sunday and that tomorrow was not, in fact today, but was actually tomorrow (which is now today).

"I'm so sorry. Can you come back tomorrow?" I asked.

"Yeah, I can do that. I'll see you tomorrow at six."

And that is why, when I got home from my friend's house last night, I found this drawing on my front porch:

When Am I?

  1. As a resent Dr. convert (watched new season 1-6 in 4 weeks…Go Netflix!) I see (and love) what she did there!
    Fezzes are NOT cool…. but Wil is…

  2. Yeah, I blasted through the whole new series in about the same amount of time. It's worth watching some of them again, because they really do hold up.
    And someone is going to yell at you for not calling it "Doctor", I just hope that doesn't happen here :)

  3. This is really cute!
    And I guess that’s one example of “if you’re awesome to people, other awesome people will want to be around you”.
    :D

  4. Great mid-night read when you know you have to get up at the buttcrack of dawn but you can’t sleep because of your own coughing. Love the reference :)

  5. Ah, I had to miss my dentist appointment today, all because I thought the 2nd was tomorrow! Hence I asked time off for tomorrow morning. Why would the 2nd be on a monday? I thought. wrong. Oh well, at least I wasn’t the only one! Optic white will hold me over too.

  6. So Molly missed Magic Mountain on Sunday for nothing. Wil, I might have to consider you an enemy now. I however will hold off any evil plots since I will most likely have Molly over to my house for a game night before the month is over.

  7. I’m really hoping that, over the next few days, your neighbours start dropping hints about the awesome, impromptu concert that Molly held on your front porch…

  8. So glad you are such a thoughtless jerk, because it made for a super drawring! It wouldn’t have happened if you weren’t always inviting people to do fun things at the wrong spot in the space-time continuum.
    Way to make even failure awesome!

  9. I can see the TV ad now.
    “When you start getting drunk without having imbibed, you know that in a few hours you’ll be relaxing with a cool Time Lord Select. Time Lord Select — the only beverage that gets you drunk quicker than a Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster. [Please don't drink and fly a TARDIS.]”

  10. Oops…speed typing+too many birthday Margaritas= big geeky faux pas….
    Thanks for the kind correction Wil.
    My summer mission is to find as many of the classic Doctor Who episodes that I can to watch. I got my son watching as well & we have concluded that British tv is the bomb!
    *whispering* Thanks Alan for being THAT GUY!
