Overall a great story, opens my mind when I read it. Just to think of time traveling, gives me joy. If I was in this scenario I would’ve time travel back to 80’s where it full of enjoyment. Reading this story made me think not only think about time traveling is cool but not everything cool is really good. We have people Eckels who wants to do their own thing and forget about any consequences living their life to the fullest FORGET THE RULES !.  Keep in mind everything happens for a reason whether the situation is big like time traveling or small like stepping on a bug. If it’s meant to be then it’s meant to be, if it’s not going the way you want. My best advice is to man up and own up to it because time moves on and days go by to just stay stuck,wonder why and cry.
