Rip Van Janna

Today I had a migraine, and spent most of the day barfing and dreaming of spears going through my head. (The sharp kind... not Britney Spears)
It's ok, though, I feel better now. The pain and nausea is 99% gone, which is enough to make me happy.

Sometimes, in the middle of these all-day migraines, I wonder what would happen if I just passed out and didn't wake up until some distant point in the future. Assuming I didn't starve to death, I imagine going outside afterward and seeing all sorts of wonderful things in this strange new futuristic world:

1) Flying cars! (I mean, c'mon, why don't we have them already? Can you imagine the "Don't Drink And Fly" commercials?)

2) Teleportation devices which can instantly take you to the destination of your choice. (There's always a chance you might accidentally vaporize forever somewhere over the Pacific, but what the heck. Live dangerously.)

3) Re-introduction of previously extinct species. My yard could be teeming with dodo birds, passenger pigeons, and the occasional tyrannosaurus rex! (And Elvis!)

4) The satisfaction of hearing someone say "Oprah WHO??"

Oprah WHO?, that's awesome! Oh what a wonderful world that would be.

Janna said...

Jason: Yeah, you know, like Rip Van Winkle? The guy who slept for a hundred years?

Julie/Mimi: Ok.

Gwen: I want my dodos to be named Jack and Ripper.

Trukindog: Exactly!

Is #4 even possible?

Rayne said...

I want a dodo, also. Do you think they'll be able to make them in different colors?
You know what I want? One of those cool Jetson style instant wardrobes. Where you walk into the closet and clothes instantly appear on you.

Hah. I didn't even read the title before I posted that. I came up with that all on my own. I feel mildly like a moron now... :-P

I love when I run into an old quote from anwhere before about 1985 where folks are predicting what it'll be like in the year 2000. How come it isn't anything like that?

Janna said...

Em: We can only hope!!

Rayne: The closet idea would be cool because everything would automatically be in my size!

Jason: It's a good thing you're pretty.

Marilyn: Exactly!
