One of those apparently brilliant but on reflection ghastly ideas was posted on Contemporary Nomad the other week, a post about Future Me. It is a website where you can write an email to yourself and specify when it is delivered, weeks, months, years into the future.
You can choose to make your emails public or private, and Olen Steinhauer has selected a couple of examples. Funny or painful? You tell me.
So have you retired then? Have you written that novel you were always going to write when you had the time? Did anyone read it? Did anyone publish it?
And little Johnny, he did marry Princess Eugenie, didn’t he? And Sally became the first woman president of the USA like you always said?"
Ok, I’ll stop there, but you get the picture.
Future Me website is here. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
