If you could fast forward to a specific date in the future, when would it be? January 11, 2014
I always find that question strange because it is in the future and you don’t know what will be the most important day in the future because it hasn’t come yet. I might want to go forward to the day I become a published author. But what could I do at that time? I would already have what I want. To go forward to one’s death day is kind of creepy; going forward to the day space travel becomes commonplace might be interesting. And going forward to a day when humans begin to live on another planet might be a good one too. But what about family? Which one of the grand children’s future would I want to go forward to see? I just have no idea what would be a good date to jump forward to. Sometimes I think I’m not as creative as other people because others find this kind of question easy to answer, but it’s not so easy for me. Maybe I think about it too much. Maybe it’s as simple as ‘the day of my hundredth birthday’ to see how things fare for me. And if I’m out of shape then I’ll know to start getting in shape and keeping in shape since I know I’m going to live that long I had better make it worthwhile.
