My sister asked me this question yesterday; apparently she had to do it for a school project, which I thought was weird for someone who’s in their 2nd year of Harvard Grad School.
I’m kidding, she’s actually in high-school. But still I thought this was more of an elementary/middle school question. Right? Maybe it’s just me. Anyway, I had fun thinking about it so here are my top 3 places I would time travel to if I had the chance.
3. Wherever Jesus was hangin out at – Year 25 A.d.
Look I can’t name a specific place to visit during this time cause Jesus was all over the place – from Nazareth to Jerusalem to Israel; I mean this guy really got around (not in that way). But I’m thinking a more ‘Wedding at Cana’ setting. I mean how cool would it be to hang with the Son of God and drink some Heaven Wine that he made out of water and have some deep philosophical talks? I wouldn’t want to stay too long though cause things got kind of rough at the end, but Jesus and I would definitely kick it and it would be sweet.
2. The Roaring 20’s – New York
I’m just picturing some Great Gatsby – type mansion parties and people dressed in suits. No iPhones, no screens, just Gin. I mean what more can you ask for? Plus I’d really love to smoke one of those french cigarrette-on-the-end-of-a-stick things with Leonardo DiCaprio. Ok maybe I just want to hang with Leonardo DiCaprio, but I’d take him back to that time with me (assuming I get to bring a guest) and we would just laugh and get hammered and he wouldn’t be all debbie-downer worried about climate change cause no one knew about it back then. Also I would love to ride in a Horse-Drawn carriage back when they were cool and not some over-priced touristy thing.
1. Philadelphia – July 4th 1776
This one is a no brainer. Imagine being in Philadelphia (otherwise known as Flip-a-delphia) and just playing flip cup with our founding fathers. I mean this must have been the most epic bar-crawl of all time. Ben Franklin black-out-drunk playing with Kites in thunderstorms trying to explain the concept of electricity to everyone and no one has no clue what he’s saying. John and Sam Adams tossing out homemade beers to whoever is in need. George Washington going undefeated in beer pong (and international wars). John Hancock bragging about his signature and penmanship like a douche but everyone forgives him cause he would go on to start a “Fuck Benedict Arnold” chant. And the rest of the time everyone would be flying flags, eating philly cheese steaks, singing patriotic songs and flag waiving accompanied by some USA chants, and most of all just shitting on England as a country would be way too fun.
