The time travelling has really messed with Martin’s perception. He’s not sure what day it is, or even what year. He could be in the future, the past or the present but he has no idea. He thinks it’s Christmas, but that’s only because there are decorations up but really that means it could be anywhere between September and February. There are enormous Christmas stockings up in shop windows and terrifyingly huge candy canes and gingerbread men (made especially terrifying after accidentally travelling to that parallel universe). He wonders if there’s time to get Gabby a Christmas present, or if it would be weird to buy her something after she walked away from his new weirdness.
