I’d like a time machine. I want to go back in time and tell my past self not to make certain bad decisions. Yeah, yeah, I know, life is a journey and I’m the person I am because I learned from my mistakes, blah, blah, blah. Screw the journey. I wanted a much less bumpy ride. They say hindsight is 20/20. Well in hindsight there’s a lot of things I wish I’d done differently. I wish I’d taken the road not taken in a few instances. The philosophical would say that I’m a better person for having experienced the things I have. Without the mistakes I’m pretty damn sure I’d be a pretty damn good person anyway, but with a lot more fame and fortune. C’mon, honestly in your heart of hearts who wouldn’t choose to go back and give their past selves even a little advice to avoid certain things? It worked out pretty good for Marty McFly didn’t it?
