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.
