Today I received a strange letter. It was a letter from my future self. Here is what it said.
How are you?
Don’t know why I’m asking that I already know because I am you from 50 years in the future! That’s right kiddo it’s 2063 and guess what? WE ARE LIVING ON THE MOON! We finally got there. Mankind sorted all its problems out and started working together. We solved the financial crisis, everyone has well fast internet access, there’s no hunger or wars, there’s no global warming or climate change. Everyone is rich and doesn’t have to work and we all holiday on the moon! It’s awesome. And the best thing is… it’s down to you!
You did this. You and you alone made the world a better place. That is why I’m writing this letter to send to you in the past to make sure you make the right choices and ensure the future of the human race.
They even managed to bring the Dodo back – they are delicious!
If my timing is right you should be just starting the A to Z challenge 2013. Man, those first couple were pretty ropey but you get there man. Most of them are brilliant. Some of them even win awards and are made into an e-book. You make millions off them and become the first person in history to hold all top ten places in the bestsellers market.
Anyway, I’m digressing. I need to warn you about something. It’s the one thing that scientists here in the future agree is the one event that has the potential to ruin this glorious future we now live in.
Today is the 3rd day of Bumferry week (that’s right, you get a whole national holiday WEEK named after you) so if my calculations are correct the bins will be collected tomorrow.
Make sure the bin men leave your bin. DO NOT LET THEM TAKE YOUR BIN AWAY.
I know it sounds stupid but if they take away your grey wheelie bin, things will go downhill very fast indeed. It will probably snow in April. As best as I can gather it has something to do with those Pizza Hut boxes but it is all a bit sciency wiency for me. I just hope I have done my sums right and the temporal royal mail deliver this in time!
That’s it really. Just make sure you have a bin and the rest will fall into place.
Good luck me. The future is relying on you.
Must dash, I’m about to play zero-G racket ball with President Bieber (yea, its not all THAT perfect in the future but you can't have it all)
Take care fella.
All the best – you.
