Three Seconds

In the beginning, when I was young, I had control over it, I was the master and it was at my command. I was certain of it. Now as time has gone by, I have fallen victim to its seductive lure more often than I care to admit. It has become clear my control was an illusion and I am now at its whim. I've tried to fight it, to control it, to hide how badly I need it and I confess... I fear time is running out. Everyone will know, I am a time traveler.

I can jump into the future at will. Sometimes it's only a few minutes, sometimes it's as much as three hours but I assure you, I have the ability, the power to do so any time I wish.

It is a lonely responsibility to move through time but I am one of the lucky ones, I have a companion... Auggie. To all outward appearances he is merely an over grown cat but believe me when I say he is in full belief he is a dog.

When he is not patrolling the fence line, he is faithfully at my side waiting for the opportunity of our next jump. As you might expect the method is quite complex and the electronic equipment involved is beyond the understanding of an ordinary mind. The choice of the right frequency is paramount to an early departure and ultimately the success of the jump. Once chosen, usually a cooking ­channel, I take my place... reclining to allow Auggie access to my chest... it's the most comfortable position for him to stand guard over me and then, in what seems like a mere 3 seconds to me I am transported to the future.

"Nice nap?" my wife asks and I smile wryly comfortable in the knowledge I have successfully jumped once more and she is none the wiser... I am a time traveler and I have come from the past to help.
