I wait for PTG to appear. I check the time on my phone. Two minutes later I check again. For some reason, this world is making me very impatient. Two minutes later I check again. One minute later, for variety, I check Tarquin's watch.

The phone and the watch are off from each other by an hour.

D'oh! Tarquin forgot to "spring ahead" and reset his watch with the time change last week! I am ahead of PTG by an hour. Or maybe I'm behind PTG by an hour? But what if this world doesn't recognize daylight savings? Then I might be two hours off? Or maybe it canceled out and it's the same time in both worlds?

Gahh! It doesn't matter! I reset Tarquin's watch, enter PTG's ID again, and hit go again.

I am still on this dry beaten track, a little closer to the hills in one direction. And lo and behold, here comes PTG from the other!

"Yay! I found you!" I bound over and shake his hand. The owl takes a dignified step from my shoulder to PTG's shoulder.

PTG sighs with relief. "That took longer than I expected."

"Oh, sorry. We had to organize a racquetball tournament. But look! I have Tarquin's fitbit watch thing and I can take us back now. I assume you still want to go back? Jenifer says Randy wants to stay. Does he really? Here, I brought some water and sandwiches. Also carrots. And some Girl Scout cookies. Are you ready? Just let me know when."

A profound sense of relief comes over me when I see a large beautifully groomed rabbit appear and I am even more amazed when I see my owl perched on her shoulder.

Formal greetings are quickly over and I give her a huge hug and we jump around like kids in a sandpit for a while. The owl is a bit nonplussed and hovers over ahead while keeping a sharp look out for any creeping or crawling objects nearby that might be a snack

It goes hungry!

Then a bout of coughing and choking reminds me that I am parched and she has kindly brought food and drink for just an emergency.

We reminisce on the recent turn of events and she wants to know where Cap’n Bob is, so I point into the haze where I last saw him.

Her next question: “Did I want to remain here?” takes me a nanosecond to answer.

I explain to her that this is not my realm and so: “Please let us get back a.s.a.p.”

I have no doubt that there would be adventures galore and a new way of life to replace my role as MC Chief Sweeper Upper if I continued to stay in this dimension having found its civilization.

But Hey! We have the means to return here and so we can perhaps do that as a planned adventure and not with this dire emergency.

So in those immortal words from afar:
Beam me up Scotty!
