Many of us wish we could go back in time and save the planet from Paris Hilton’s singing career, or signing a 3-year contract for TSTT’s DSL service, but unfortunately, that is not how life works. Life isn’t always fair and the fact that some people suffer from baldness together with a severe scalp condition is proof of this. If Life came with an instruction manual we would not seek breast implants or those who have them. It would tell us how to be happy and why size may not really matter but texture and shape is very important. But since we don’t have an authorized manual on Life we depend on history for our learning, and our history has taught us where we should park in Trincity Mall. Learning from mistakes is the way people learn to live and repeating them is the subject of many ill fated insurance claims.
Having a limited time to live makes us obsessed with happiness and if we can’t have eternal bliss we will settle for the occasional movie and a chicken combo at Movie Towne. We would have preferred a wider variety of places and food but traffic and bandits have limited our choices. Some say the main purpose in life is to leave the world a better place, but since better is relatively subjective it would be better to write an autobiography to twist the truth about our time on the planet.
Time is essential to life and without time there would be no late coming and traffic would have no meaning. We pass time, spend time, and even appear to buy time but we can only go back in time if our memory is good and our videotapes didn’t grow fungus. Time is not only useful for spending with pretty girls but it is necessary if we want to get a birth certificate or passport. Time wasting is tragic but going back in time would require even more time and that is what we cannot afford to waste any more time on.
