Once upon a time, I was The Girl Who Waited. And waited, and waited. Life was something that happened to other people, not me. Then I met you and that wonderful, mad Amy Pond. You whisked her away from her impossibly little life and showed her what was possible.
You told Amy that we’re all stories in the end, so just make it a good one eh… but that day, you really told me too. You said it was okay to be bonkers, with grace. That bow ties were cool and fish fingers went with custard.
Amy grew up. I grew up.
Like Amy, I became I journalist. Now I get to tell stories. Big stories. Little stories. Sad stories. Happy stories. Mad stories. Good stories.
So thank you. Thank you for changing my life.
