Back to the Future? Or Forward to the Past? According to showroom sales guy, there are two models; one travels only to the future, and the other travels only to the past. It’s one way or the other – pick one. So I did.

And now, here I am in the past. I thought I could change the world, do more traveling, make a difference. And I did, at least for a little while. But then it got a little old. After all, my life back in the present; um, future, wasn’t so bad at all. I just wanted to change a few things, then come on back home. The plan was to take the one machine back in time, then take the other back to the future.

But wouldn’t you know it, they lost my luggage. Now I’m stuck here without clean shirts or a way home.

“Congrats! You’re the owner of a new time machine. The catch? It comes in two models, each traveling one way only: the past OR the future. Which do you choose, and why?”
