CHICAGO, IL (November 12, 2015) — The hope of spring in the midst of winter’s long, cold days causes some to anticipate Groundhog Day in February—and that brings to mind Bill Murray’s inimitable performance in the eponymous 1993 film where he is forced to relive the same day over and over again. Murray plays weatherman Phil Connors, who is sent to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to cover the emergence of the groundhog from its hole to predict how many days of winter are left. When he and his film crew get stuck in a blizzard that he failed to predict, Phil finds himself trapped in a time warp.
The idea of repeating one day over and over has the Companion wondering, if you could choose to relive one day of your life, what day you choose? Would it be a child’s wedding day, an idyllic vacation, a visit with a loved one who is no longer living? Perhaps, like Phil Connors, it would be a “do over,” a chance to get things right this time. If you had to (or could) relive one day of your life, what day would you choose and why?
