The Time Traveler's Apology
« on: March 18, 2020, 05:30:40 pm »
I'm so sorry honey, I forgot our -50th anniversary, I will make it up to you in universe number 1304. 

Perhaps dinner overlooking the hubbub of the Parthenon, and maybe a stroll through the ruins of DC?

I could just go back and do it properly, but we'd both know that's cheating.  Well, I'd know. 

Anyway, I am/will be/was sorry.  Potentially.  We'll have to wait for the wave to collapse to be sure.

Love,
Your determined indeterminate.

Dad,

I wrecked the car.  But at least that means our insurance will go down.

I have gone back to 2019 six times now, and it occurs to me that we were never actually promised good choices.

Listen, I only had enough time-fuel for one more jump.  I had to choose between stopping Hitler, and stemming the next wave of boy bands.

I stand by my decision.

To Whom It May Concern at the ConHugeCo Company,

I apologize for missing the job interview. I look forward to making the job interview.

Sincerely,

Job Titor
