Time Traveler

So, I got a call from the future the other day. From my son. Really! Actually, he calls from the future quite often.

This is particularly noteworthy because when he was about 6 or 7 years old, he was obsessed with time travel. He read books on the subject, studied them to be more accurate, and discussed—at length—building a time machine with a guy in our church after nearly every service. Time travel was one of his many interests early in life. But, it was a dream he eventually gave up on when he discovered it would take far more power than he could possibly amass. Theoretically possible, but it just wasn’t feasible.

Yet, when he got older, he did find a way to travel to the future—and he calls me frequently just to prove it. You’d think he’d give me a hot stock tip or something. Maybe help me out with knowing when to stay home from work to miss a winter storm. That would be nice. But he never does. Perhaps that sort of thing might be against the rules, I don’t know.

Okay, I know many of you are reading this with a frown on your face. Probably thinking I’ve finally lost it. “Time travel isn’t real,’ I’m sure you’re saying.

Oh, but it is. How, you ask?

Simple really. At least the way my son does it is simple—he moved to a different time zone and is always an hour ahead of me. Except when he comes to visit and travels back in time—and then he goes back to the future. And all it takes is a tank of gas! ~
