"Whenever my son wishes he could time travel, I try to awaken him to the
wonder of ordinary things by telling him that we *are* time travellers -
moving through time at the rate of 24 hours per day, and isn't it exciting?

"That really annoys him, of course."
One of my sisters used to moan on weekends, "Why can't we ever GO somewhere?" 
and my father would reply cheerfully, "We are somewhere." Drove her right 
around the bend.
