Proof of Self

I was making the long trek from car to destination, and as sometimes happens, my mind wandered. I pondered time travel. (Isn't that what you ponder while you're walking from place to place?) And then I wondered...

What if you were to go back in time and encounter your previous self? What if you needed to tell your younger self something? How would you prove to you that you are the future you?


  1. It would be obvious by the way I look. Which is pretty much the same except for a few grey hairs :)

  2. I still look the same as I did when I was twelve, so it shouldn't be that hard to convince me that I'm me. Plus I remember a bunch of stuff I can use as blackmail. I mean, proof.

  3. Hmm....sounds like a good book. Maybe you can write it!

    1. That's the whole point of these posts. Story ideas. For anyone.


I appreciate your comments.

I respond to comments* via email, unless your profile email is not enabled. Then, I'll reply in the comment thread. Eventually. Probably.

*Exception: I do not respond to "what if?" comments, but I do read them all. Those questions are open to your interpretation, and I don't wish to limit your imagination by what I thought the question was supposed to be.
