Sunday, November 13, 1955. Last night's time travel experiment was apparently a complete success. Lightning struck the clock tower at precisely 10:04 P.M. sending 1.21 gigawatts into the time vehicle, which vanished in a brilliant flash of light leaving a pair of fire trails behind. I therefore assume that Zach and the time vehicle were transported forward through time. After that... I can't recall what happened. I don't even remember how I got home. Perhaps the gigawatt discharge coupled with the temporal displacement field...
Calm down! It's just me, Zach!
No, it can't be you! You're not supposed to be born for another 29 years!
That's right! I thought you might want a piece of my birthday cake! I came back to 1955 with the you from 2011. But while I was getting the cake out of the oven the DeLorean was struck by lightning and you got sent to 1911!
That's a very interesting story, future boy. But if the me of the future is now in the past, how could you possibly know about it?
You sent me a letter.
Well at least I hope you didn't interfere with your parents' timelines.
No, of course not! But I may have sort of bumped into my grandparents.
