The Question:

If you had a time machine (i.e. a TARDIS), where would you go?

My Answer: 

My answer is two-part. The first is a personal time travel, the second a list of time periods I’ve come to love through reading.

If I had a time machine, I would go back in time…to May 2002. That is when my mother first started having complications with her pregnancy, after finally announcing it in April. She was pregnant with twins, a boy and a girl. 

Unfortunately, the events that happened over the next two months are what set a huge rift in our relationship. No matter how many times I suggested she go to the doctor, she wouldn’t. She lost the boy, and one night something unknown happened. We woke up and she was gone…with bloodstains on the sheets. We didn’t know where she was for three days until a lady she worked with called us. And that’s why I blamed her for over a decade for the death of my sister. 

Maybe I could have done something different, maybe not. I could have been more adamant and have it out with my aunts and grandmother. But even if all of the events still ended up with the same result, I would do my biggest life regret over: I would go to the hospital with my dad and brothers. I was so angry and blamed my mother that I didn’t want to be anywhere around her. So I told my dad I wouldn’t go, and that was the biggest mistake of my life. When my mom came home, she refused to talk about it at all. She made my brothers and relatives swear not to tell my anything. My relatives would say to ask my mom, but she obstinately refused to say one word. My brothers heralded me with “You didn’t want to go” come backs…and that lead to a decade of pay backs war. 

To this day I don’t know exactly what happened, or why my sister died. Was she stillborn, or did she at least take breath? Were certain organs underdeveloped? How far along was my mom? They are questions I will never get answers to, and yes, even after all this time, it still matters to me. 

Due to reading all across the board, these are other places I’d like to time travel to:

  1. Little House on the Prairie days (thank you, Laura Ingalls Wilder)
  2. Victorian England
  3. Scottish Highlands
  4. American 1920s

{Next week’s question: Post a funny Youtube video (doesn’t have to be book related).}


What about you? Where would you go in a time machine? Leave me a comment with your response and your Friday Follow.

  2. I’m so sorry for what has happened in your past. I think ‘Amber’ who commented above, summed it up perfectly.
