What are Cosmic Potholes?

Like many others, I spent the majority of 2020 holed up at home, watching TV. One of the shows I binged was Wings, which ran on NBC from 1990 - 1997. The show was created by David Angell, Peter Casey, and David Lee, the geniuses behind Cheers and Frasier, and produced by Paramount Network Television. If you aren't familiar with it, this awesome comedy was about a couple of brothers trying to keep their small charter airline afloat out of Nantucket Island. Like the other shows in the Cheers universe, the cast is amazing. Every single episode is hilariously funny and I found laughter helpful in making me forget - albeit for short periods - of what was happening with the world. One of the many things I really love about the show is the theme song, a modern take on a Franz Schubert piece, Piano sonata No. 20 in A Major, D. 959, IV; it's a feel good thing.

As I watched these episodes over and over on Pluto TV, one day something really resonated with me. In just the second episode of Season 1, Around the World in Eighty Years, Lowell, the mechanic, explained, in what viewers would soon discover to be his infinite wisdom, what had happened to another character:

Lowell: "...he slipped through a hole in the universe and he's lost somewhere in time."

Brian: "A hole in the universe, Lowell?"

Lowell: "Yeah, they're everywhere. Cosmic potholes I call 'em."

(You can see a clip from this episode if you search for "Wings Cosmic Potholes" on YouTube.)

This explains everything! And looking back, it seems like life is filled with Cosmic Potholes. Perhaps if we start to recognize them, we can learn to avoid them.
