Lotta: Momma, if you could go back in time and change anything what would it be?
Me: How far back can I go?
Lotta: 7 years. [ed. note- 7 years = 1 lifetime to a 7 yo]
Me: Could I cheat and go back 8 years?
Me: I'd go to Florida and work my butt off to make sure they changed those butterfly ballots that gave the Jewish vote to anti-Semite Pat Buchanan and 500 too many votes to George W. Bush.
Lotta: If I could go back in time I'd go back 2000 years and stop the first war.
Me: Oh, sweetie, the first war was probably 200,000 years ago when more than 10 cavemen decided they all wanted a bigger piece of the mastodon.
Lotta: (60 Minutes piece on the War in Afghanistan is on TV) Well, I'd like to go back and stop this war.
Me: If Al Gore had won we wouldn't have had these wars. So my trip to Florida would save you your trip.
