Life Lessons I Learned From Doctor Who

Life Lessons Learned From Doctor Who //

You may or may not be aware that I am a GIANT Whovian nerd.  So much so, in fact, that I know that Whovian is officially a real word, as of 2012 when it was added to the Oxford English Dictionary.  NERD ALERT!

I quote it constantly, watch it nearly 24 hours a day, every day of the month, and delight in all things Doctor Who.  I’m even planning to hit the museum in Cardiff when I take my next trip to the UK.  Because I’m a dork, and also, that is awesome.

The show is hilarious and fun and full of useful information and life lessons to help anyone (even you non-Whovian weirdos) through life.  So I give you sixteen life lessons from watching Doctor Who!

  1. Bananas are good
  2. Time paradoxes will sort themselves out
  3. Unless you touch a younger version of yourself, then times will erase itself
  4. Unless it’s Christmas, in which case, touch away
  5. Keep the domestics outside
  6. People are pretty unobservant so you can park anywhere you want
  7. Time is not linear, it’s sort of a ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey… Stuff
  8. Sometimes your wife is named after herself and you snogged her mother, who is also your best friend, but is younger than your wife, who is also in jail for your murder — basically, life is complicated.
  9. Demons run when a good man goes to war
  10. When traveling abroad you need to experience it.  Eat the food, use the wrong verbs, get charged double and end up kissing a stranger
  11. You might ad well tell someone if they are dying. Lying won’t save them, even if it might make them feel better
  12. Your fear of creepy children in gasmasks is well founded
  13. Your fear of the darks is also well founded
  14. Tenses are funny
  15. Never knowingly be serious, and never grow up
  16. Always say you’re sorry, so sorry

Stay tuned, there is a part two of this!  That will make 32 total life lessons!
