I Almost Died Over One Thousand Years From Now

I can't believe I actually made it back...

Maybe I'm NOT back... Jesus, that would be a kick in the head. Maybe I'm still there... caught, "drugged" (or whatever they call that stuff they do to people... or maybe I should say "people" instead...?

My mistake was buying the time machine instructions off the web and going FOREWARD in time on my first trip, rather than BACKWARD. If I'd gone backwards, I would have had a chance to figure out how to navigate better.

Wow... look at how long I was gone... I missed weeks of classes... I'm going to have to go back and teach those classes... I don't want to lose my job.

Anyway... where do I start? It was AMAZING... I didn't mean to go so far ahead... HECK, I've always figured humanity would be long dead before 1000 years go by. I just wanted to slip ahead about 10 years to see what was going on. Ten years should have been a safe bet. Surely the world wouldn't end in 10!

Damn, like I said, I should have practised that time-travel thing a bit.

Anyway... I'll tell you about what's going on there... then, I mean...

But first, like I said, I need to go back and teach those classes. Plus, that will be good practice.
