Ice Breaker – Time Machine

Each week on The Stretched Blog, I ask an ice breaker question. The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community. I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments. While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

(I’m always looking for Ice Breaker question ideas.  If you have an idea, send me an email at  If I use your question, I’ll give you credit and share your links.)

Question:  If you had a time machine, what year would you go to – past or future?

My Answer:  The idea of time travel has always intrigued me.  I’m not looking to rush things, and I don’t want to live in the past.  Picking a year is pretty tough.  Just for the fun of it, I think it might be interesting to go back to 1990.  This is the year I graduated from high school.  I would be more intentional in spending time with my parents, my brothers, and my grandparents.  At this stage in my life, I had no idea how the years would move my family geographically apart.
