“One day, there was this windy sound - all vacuum-cleaner-like. And would you believe, a blue box of wood flew right outta the sky! Well, I didn’t know what to think - I wasn’t expecting a mail delivery or nothing - so I just watched. Soon enough, a funny little man, with the floppiest hair I’ve ever laid my eyes upon, stepped out. He wore a blue bow tie and was waving about a silver pencil, like he was trying to fix something. And then, that man smiled up at me, came on over to give my hand a nice firm shake, and asked if I liked running.
Now, I been running with the Doctor ever since. He’s a real strange man - likes to wear hats of all sorts - but he couldn’t be nicer to me. We’ve had lots of fun adventures, he and I. And I’ve learned lots of lessons from him, like to never give up hoping and that it’s OK to act like a child sometimes. Since I started traveling with the Doctor, I’ve gotten so much more brave; smarter, too. I think mama would be real proud.”
