Any of my regular readers and anyone who I have been following for a while will have noticed that I’ve been far less present lately with posting and visiting! It’s been pretty crazy here this season!! I promise I’ll be back to full form in the New Year when life has settled….. Does that EVER really happen?? 🤔
I’m any case, I haven’t had a huge amount of time to read, sadly. So, my Twelve Days of Christmas Reads has kind of gone to the wayside this year… What I HAVE had time for (since it’s so much easier to do when I have 2 seconds to clean the house or something) is to watch ridiculous amounts of Hallmark Christmas movies…. And some of them have left me with some deep questions!
Question #1 comes from the movie Eve’s Christmas
So, you are a hard working business woman (of course) who made the choice to run out on your wedding and take a job in the big city, only to discover that you only got the job based on your looks and that your boss (married, with children) just wanted to sleep with you. You are drunk and unhappy and you call your ex-fiance only to have a woman pick up the phone and to hear your ex in the background saying “Honey? Who is it?” CLEARLY, he’s moved on.
So, you wish on a Christmas Star and suddenly you wake up back in 1996. You have 7 days to decide whether you want to change your future and stay with Scott, or if you want to stay with the life you had. But, you’re going back to 2004 regardless. WHAT DO YOU CHOOSE??
Well, my question wasn’t WHAT DO YOU CHOOSE? It was…. WHAT GIVES YOU THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE??
How can it be completely up to her whether she gets to change this decision or not?? Scott had a life in this other reality, as well! He could have a wife and kids, a great job… HE COULD BE HAPPY!! Who says this woman is so great that he would give all of that up to be with HER if given the chance!! No one even asked his opinion! Isn’t that a little unfair?
The other question that I had was the fact that she went back to 1996, but still had all of the knowledge of her life in 2004. She was still that person. So, when she gets sent back to 2004 after the 7 days will she remember being back in time? If she chooses to stay with Scott and have a life with him, will she remember the years they had together? Or will she go back to 8 years later and remember nothing of those years, but they’re together??
It’s all so confusing!
What are your thoughts on the dilemma’s of Time Travel?? Should Eve get to make these decisions for everyone?? What do you think would happen upon her return to the future? And, how would all of you deal with this situation??
