In my own private for-my-personal-use-only fantasy versions of the actors I adore, they are never actors. I couldn’t handle a relationship with a famous actor. Nope. So I make them something else. In the world inside my head, Tom is a doctor. [I’m from the generation of women who were raised to believe dating a doctor was the gold standard. A number of doctor’s ex-wives tell me they beg to differ.]
But back to My Headspace Tom. He works in an ER–An A & E, they call it in Britain, I think. So when I saw this picture today, I got a little choked up. Here he is, doctor Tom.
