Back to the Future

I found this list the other day.

Obviously it's a list of what some one wants for Christmas. Initially I assumed the list belonged to Little Boy Blue since he's the only one that would ask for Time Machine parts.

Then I read chocolate as the second item. I certainly understand why chocolate would be listed as top priority. Is chocolate also that important to Little Boy Blue or is this a list I wrote when I was younger? ...oh the mysteries.

And one more thought. The first item specifically asks for a Time Machine Clock. This indicates, to me, that the writer already owns a Time Machine but wants to accessorize with a new clock, similar to someone purchasing a new stereo for their car. If my theory is correct, time travel could be more than just a concept at my house. Which begs the question, is this list from the future? or the past?

I don't think it's Little Boy Blue's list because there is no mention of Lego anywhere..

"the writer already owns a Time Machine but wants to accessorize with a new clock..."
that is hilarious. I laughed out loud at this post. Thanks for making my day!
It made me think of The Big Bang Theory episode where Leonard bids on (and wins)the actual Time Machine prop from the movie.
You are so funny!
