Past Brett vs. Future Brett

Past Brett vs. Future Brett

Hey Team,

pastbrettHere’s the thing about how I write posts for Amtrekker now days. I usually get an idea while I’m in the middle of doing something else that I can’t just drop so, like a respectable and professional writer, I whip out my trusty notebook, jot down a few lines and open up a Word document first chance I get. The trouble is, it seems Future Brett never speaks the same language as Past Brett.

Case in point: The only line I gave myself to go off of for this post was two words long. It said, “Rubber bands.” It’s even underlined. So…apparently there’s something that Past Brett really wants to say about rubber bands.

I’ve been wracking my brain for the last two days trying to figure out what the heck I was trying to tell myself. The only clues I have are:

1) I know where I was and what I was doing when I wrote the note and

2) I know it has something to do with travel.

As much as I love the movie Memento…this is kind of pissing me off.

That said, I suppose it could be worse. I once wrote myself a note that said:

Q: Why is he dead?

A: Crustaceans.

futurebrettI would LOVE to know what that was supposed to be about. Whatever the thought behind that was I bet Past Brett was really proud of it and couldn’t wait to share it with the world.

In fact! I’m so curious, if someone wants to write me a post that would fit in with either of those notes I would be more than happy to put it up on the site as a featured guest post! That’s a great idea! This could be really fun! Send me your story (it doesn’t have to be long…I try to keep my stuff under 500 words) by Friday and I’ll pick out the best ones and let the world see what could have been!

Maybe with the help of Present You, Past Brett will finally get his message out!

I’m done.

Present Brett.

  1. Brett, I admire the way you live your life for the moment. I do a lot of drifting for days at a time and enjoy the adventures along the way. But I've tied myself down with my video business that I have equal passion for.
    I hope we get a chance to wander on an adventure together some time. I'm sure it would be great.
    Keep moving forward!

  2. It seems to me that someone put rubber bands on his arm for each item out of his backpack to make sure that he remembered to put everything back in.

  3. I’m sure it had something to do with that, I just usually trust myself to have a larger point…or at least something to compare it to. 🙂

  4. Bret,
    I may have the answer to your stretchy conundrum. I remember watching you collect rubber bands off the street once. I politely asked what the hell your problem was. I was hoping you planned a potential energy assault on some poor soul. You explained that you wrapped all of your electronic cords with rubber bands. When you unpack at some random place you secure the removed bands on your wrist. A clever inventory check list upon repacking for a quick getaway. This seems logical. It could also be that you are trying to break that cross dressing habit of yours. Each time you find yourself slipping on a tutu or high heels a snap on the wrist hinders your progress.
    Love mike
