I Would Be Awesome

I’ve been thinking a lot about time traveling lately.
I’m thinking it’s possible.
But I’m not sure.

I am pretty certain, however, that one can’t time travel
to the same time that the person already exists.

For instance, I was born in 1965 and it is now 2011.
I am already here and so I couldn’t travel to 1984
because I already exist at that time.
And I think it has something to do with my atoms clashing,
or something like that.
I can only have so many
“Holly Atoms” in one place at one time.

I would have to either go back before 1965
or go into the future sometime after I’ve died.
But I don’t know when that is yet.
And by the time I found out when that was,
I’d be dead and wouldn’t know.

I could, I guess, go into the future around 2081
since I’m pretty sure I’m not going
 to be alive 70 years from now.

But I wouldn’t want to go into the future.
The past is definitely the way to go.
If you travel into the future,
You’d be all stupid.
You would have missed so much.
You’d stare at flying cars and be all like,

“What the hell is that???!!!”

And people on the street would think you
were a drunk, crazy, homeless person.

Nope, the past is totally the way to go.
Because then I could invent the tape measure
or make a caramel macchiato and people would be all,

“Holy Crap! How did you do that?!”

And then I’d be all,
“Oh, it’s just something I came up with.”
All nonchalant like.

That would be awesome.


You know, I’m just full of ideas, all day long
I’m not saying they’re good ideas.
I’m just saying I’m full of them.

xxx-ooo

Glad you posted this in time for me to read before heading off to work. I would like to go back to the 1800's, cause I think I would be able to hide my butt in a hoop skirt......

I have travelled in time. In 1965 I wanted to know where I'd be in 2011 - and - voila! - here I am! It'd be interesting to go back in time from the historical aspect, but I'd miss all the mod cons i've become used to. And you're right about the future making us look stupid (er) so I guess I'll just have to settle for the here and now. Great post

Your mind works in mysterious ways ... I got tired just reading about what you're thinking about! :) Fun stuff ...

Kris said...

Me thinks you have been reading a LOT of Diana Gabaldon!!!!
: )

ain't for city gals said...

I just watched the The Time Traveler's Wife..it was pretty good..better than I thought it would be...kind of on this same theme but of course the man got to experience it...lol..

Jan said...

Now THAT was a 'thinker'.

I don't like feeling stupid, so your take on the Future was a good one. But, maybe there would be cures for wrinkles and stuff by then (you're too young but they're coming), or they would have figured out how to stop wars.

The past would be interesting...you could meet your ancestors. BUT, there wasn't much deoderant back then (or mouthwash), so that could be a problem.

Can you tell us what you're having for breakfast these days to make you want to travel? Or is it the heat?

Forget time travel Holly. Just get in the car and head north, where there will be a Diet Coke with your name on it and you can ponder the past/future.

You could be a true Connecticut Yankee {Hoosier Mid-westerner} in King Arthur's Court

Totally the past for me !

just call me jo said...

You're full of it all right--er, full of ideas that is. I can't even venture to Mesa by myself, so I'm pretty sure you can count me out of time travel. The closest I come to that is when I go home to Idaho...hahaha! (only funny if you've lived in ID? Perhaps.) I will have my people talk to your people and we can do lunch this week. I think we both need to get out more. How's the mole or absence there of?

Forget about rules, I wanna go back to 1975, I'd make some different choices!
P.S. I was born in 1957, when dino's roamed the earth ;)

Linda said...

I think I'd go back to the past as long as I can have my A/C and diet coke!

Genn said...

HA!
I am with you Holly.
Maybe it is possible.
Or maybe it's only possible for certain people.
Or maybe it's only possible for Claire and Brianna and Roger. ?

Have you read Time Traveler's Wife?
Seen the movie?
I bet you'd like it. :)

laurie said...

deb said...

I would like to go back to 1971 and change some things....lololol.........

Amy said...

The past is definetly the way to go. I love rambling thoughts such as these.

I often wonder what I would be if I lived in the old west. If I were still in my present single state, I am sure I would have been either a school marm or a saloon girl.
