So many possibilities… Would I go back to side with the brash young Joe Namath and bet on the Jets in Super Bowl III? Would I go back and load up on Apple stock (and then make a quick pit stop in 2011 on my way back to sell it all and bury the cash in my backyard till I get back to today)?
I’m sitting around with the girls (Molly, Claudia and Corinne), watching The Perks of Being a Wallflower. So tonight, if I had the infinitely valuable power to travel back in time, I would go back to the ’80s and premake a not-especially-successful teen movie with Brat Packers. (Of course, John Hughes would direct.)
