Have you noticed the little note on Yahoo! advertising that you can Send your future self an email that you will receive in 20 years?
I passed right buy it 1,000 times, but then I got to thinking...what would my 14 year-old self had said to me now? How cool would that be if I had a message from the teenage, big-haired ALa. So I decided that I'm going to do it. The thing is I am not sure whether to make it funny or serious.
I would like to tell my 54 year old self to grab a mirror and make sure I hadn't let myself down. That I wasn't in a Moo-Moo...that I had had my eyes done...that I still didn't own any clothing with Disney characters on it...that I wasn't listening to Lawrence Welk or taking square dancing lessons...that I wasn't holding people up in lines digging in my little change purse for two pennies...that I didn't own cats...that I wasn't leaving the house in stretch pants... Oh, so many things.
Or should I be serious? Pour out my soul and see if I feel the same in 2025.
Technologically speaking, won't it be wild if the email really finds its way 20 years into the future?
Here's how it works
