Quantum Leap TV showThere used to be a TV series called “Quantum Leap” where a science experiment goes wrong which causes the star of the show to be transported from one time and place to another for each episode of the show.

Then there was a movie this summer called “The Time Traveler’s Wife” also about a guy who flips around through time and his wife gets left behind waiting for him to return (or something like that). Obviously I didn’t see it. It’s not Man’s Show material. It sounds like a bad “chick flick” with some sci-fi thrown in to fool the guys. If you have to use trickery to get people there, the movie premise can’t be all that compelling. By the time you guys that saw it realized that you were bamboozled, it was probably too late and you were trapped in the theatre for the duration.

The Time Traveler's Wife - a Chick FlickAs I was riding in the car with my wife (The Diva) the other day, I realized that our conversations could be the subject of a movie plot that would be called “The Subject Jumper’s Husband.”

We are sometimes in the car, sometimes in the house, wherever… having what I mistakenly believe to be a linear conversation (yes, I was a science major in college).

And then it happens suddenly.

There are no cool special effects or flashes of laser light like the movies/TV to signal the “leap” but I am suddenly transported to another conversation that has no similarities, relevancy or even vague connections to what we where just discussing seconds ago.

Because of the lack of special effects, I am clueless that the “leap” occurred for several seconds and sometimes minutes. I’m sure I look puzzled for a while and then it hits me…

The Subject Jumper's Husband“Wow! I guess we just leaped!”

Just so you understand, The Diva is way more powerful than any of those TV/movie characters you’ve seen before. She can “leap” any time she wants and isn’t victimized by random “leaping.” When she realizes that “I understand” that we’ve leaped and that I may be a little bit traumatized – she just laughs and then “boom” she can bring us back to where we were as quickly as she wants.

Sometimes we “leap” back and forth so many times – I get lost.
She is never fazed.

It’s not easy being married to someone with super powers like that. But I’m a secure enough man to admit I am no match for her abilities.
