I was sitting in my office today and I’m looking on my bookshelf, I’ve done this a few times so far.
There you are. You’re walking down the aisle.
You can’t believe that you’ve made it this far.
The date that you have planned for tonight? Well, it’s worked out. Oh yes, you know everything about it! It doesn’t matter that it’s presently 2011–it doesn’t matter at all. You can see the future.
