I want life to work like my VCR. Can you imagine how great that would be? You could pause and take a nap, or fast froward to the end of that boring lecture or business meeting. Rewind to the best day of your life and live it over again. You may even be able to erase and do it over differently. I think that would be great.

Like 'Groundhog Day'..the movie? Not so sure I'd want to do that!!! Though I would like to fast forward through the bad times..slow down the times I'm with my family.

That sounds good to me!!!

As I recall, my vcr was complicated to program, wouldn't rewind tapes very well, didn't work half the time.  Maybe life's already like a vcr.  *grins*

Okay. I'm game. Now, anybody happen to have a "head cleaner" handy?

Of course, you also have to think about the 2 year olds sticking penut butter sammiches and crayons in ya, and then trying to figure out how to set the stupid clock to where it won't blink 12:00... hehehe

We are like VCR's, we're difficult to program to do the right thing.     Couldn't resist that one.

I agree it does bring a smile, and it is a good thought. I like that one.

I want to return the cassette of my life to the video shop.

I am sure I asked for a slapstick comedy with an amazing love interest and a romantic happy ever after ending, and they have gone and given me a completely unintelligable horror/tragedy in a foregn language where the subtitles dont work.  I dont know whats going on!

That's all fine and dandy, but what about programming the VCR?

I often think this....... i think it'd be the best thing since toilet paper!



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.
