I've been watching Doctor Who recently. Finally watched series 5. Sssooooo good. But I was thinking. If I had the opportunity to be a companion, would I? Would you? Could you? Fly away with a mad man in a box of the bluest blue ever?
I am a seriously lazy, slightly homebody type person. I have not positive feelings toward running. I'm awkward around people I don't know. And yes, the Doctor may be able to get you back 5 minutes after you left, but you are going to be changed. And it may not be for better, but it would be for good.
But could I stay away? I mean, there's the chance to meet the people I look up to. I mean, Martha got to meet Shakespeare. Amy got to meet Vincent Van Gogh. I would do alot to be able to meet them. Plus amazing things I would never have the opportunity to see otherwise.
So, I would go with the Doctor. The wonder lust would beat out uncomfort.
