Time Machine

Comic Transcript

Panel 1:
Mimi and Iffy are sitting on a love seat, looking forward.
Mimi, smiling, says: You know, Iffy, when you’re 20, you’re young and attractive.
Iffy, looking up toward his bald head says: And you have hair.
Mimi says: But, in your 30’s, you’re smarter, more confident.

Panel 2:
Mimi, turning serious, says: In your 40’s, you realize that life’s not gonna last forever, but you’re too busy to dwell on it.
Iffy, frowning, with beady eyes, says: Yeah, and in your 50’s and 60’s, time begins to fly by.

Panel 3:
Closeup on Mimi, still sitting on love seat, gazing into thin air.
She says: At our age, you wonder what you’d do differently if you had a time machine and could go back and relive your life.
But deep down, you know you would probably make the same decisions, because…it’s just who you are.

Panel 4:
Mimi and Iffy are still sitting on the love seat.
With raised eyebrows, Iffy looks toward Mimi and asks: So, given a second chance, you would still marry me?
Mimi laughs and says: No way!
Just kidding. Of course I would. I love you, you crazy knucklehead.
Iffy says: Me too. Well, except for the knucklehead part.
