  • Oh if only I could go back that far- I would tell my old self to do some stuff differently, become a better saver & choose a different career path- so we could keep up with these out of control prices on everything!

  • I HAD $5 for a cup of coffee then! Now, I'll stick to whats on sale at the market! LOL! Go back to the '50's though! They would know we are all nuts today~!

  • 20 years ago I thought beepers were beyond cool, and was always jealous that my older brother had one and I didn't. 10 years ago I wouldn't have guessed cell phones could be so impossibly small, either.

  • If I went back twenty years, I would start buying Starbucks, Verizon, and Apple stock like a mad man!!! LOL

  • 5 years ago I was 5 so I would probably look at my adult self and run screaming.

  • I'd have to go a few more years back then that. More like 35-40. Even then I'd just think cool Star Trek becomes reality.
