FUTURE CRISTIN

This evening as I was preparing dinner, the phone rang. I answered and a strange robotic voice said,

"THIS IS A MESSAGE FROM FUTURE CRISTIN: DO NOT GO TO GUATEMALA."

At first I thought, "Wow, I am so glad that my future self thought to call me. I will definitely not be going to Guatemala now." (I decided not to anyway.) Then it occurred to me, if this really was my future self, don't you think I would throw in some more information like,

"Don't let Erik get his pilot's license or it ends very badly for you."
"California will fall into the ocean in 2010."
"The code word is: Kaci Do do*."

I would also probably leave myself a 2015 Sports Almanac so that I could win a lot of money and build 10 story casinos and museums dedicated to myself like Biff did in Back to the Future 2.

While I was busy wishing what more Future Cristin would have said, Kelley (my sister), called laughing. Here is the link to make funny phone calls. As she reminded me in the subject line of her email: "Remember Threats Are Illegal." Thank you to Kelley for the legal advice.

Here is a clip from The Office... mostly because I am going through withdrawals ever since the Season Finale aired.



*"Kaci Do Do" was our code word when I was a little kid. This was to be used if something happened to my parents and they sent a stranger to pick us up from school. In this grim scenario, the good people were to identify themselves by the secret word, "Kaci Do Do." Future Cristin most definitely would have done the same.

  2. With great power comes great responsibility. Use this gift wisely!!! Like Vak and I did last night when we called vak's friend *Brian and made it look as if the girl he liked was calling him and saying she wanted to marry him and make babies.

    *Name has been changed

  4. I just watched four clips of The Office from your uTube post. I am so sad that I've never seen it. Shame on me. PS I don't remember what conclusion I came to after our bottle talk the other day but Camden is taking a bottle now...almost.
