Writer's Block: Do-over!  
If you were given a life do-over card, would you keep it or give it to a friend? If you kept it, would you prefer to be born to the same or different parents? Would you want to keep your memories?


If you were given a life do-over card, would you keep it or give it to a friend? If you kept it, would you prefer to be born to the same or different parents? Would you want to keep your memories?

I'd keep it, most definitely. I can only think of one friend who's managed to screw up his life anywhere nearly as badly as I've screwed up mine.

I wouldn't trade my parents in for anyone. I would definitely keep my memories; that's the whole point of a do-over, right? "Putting things right that once went wrong", as they used to say on Quantum Leap.

If I had to limit myself to one, specific change, I'd have stayed in the Coast Guard and gone to Marine Science Tech school. I could have spent the last two decades actually doing Real Science That Made A Difference instead of pissing around struggling to get a science degree that I don't know how to apply.

If I kept my memories, I could still meet the people who mean the most to me.

And the one who made me happy.

If I'd that one change I'd have gone to London Transport instead of EMI. Meaning I'd not be doing what I do where I do it and making a (good) difference to at least some people.

But... I might be an hexecertiff, I might be on humungous money with a final salary pension....
or I might have fried myself on the 600V rail.
Nil Desperandum. it's not over until it's over, and there's good stuff yet to come... just wait and see.
