The future: an object of society’s imagination, hopes, and dreams. Countless sciencefiction films have told what we as humans wish the future to be; however, for me it is not about flying space crafts or holograms, but merely a quest for luscious treats. If I had the ability to travel through time, I would venture to the future in search of a cure for Maple Syrup Urine Disease, a rare metabolic disorder, which ravages my life, and strangles my ability to eat those luscious treats.

Over the years, I have watched a myriad of people gulp down shakes, plunge into Dairy Queen Blizzards, and gorge themselves on chocolate. With limited enzyme activity, I have not had this opportunity and it preys on my mind daily. This, of course, is why I would travel to the future; to run rampant through Steak ‘n’ Shake; to eat, sleep, and breathe Dairy Queen; and most importantly, indulge myself in the every-tasty treats from the Hershey’s Chocolate Factory.

After relishing in the aforementioned goodies, my life would be complete and I would feel as though I am on top of Mount Everest.

Until time travel is perfected, I will just have to wait outside of the ice cream shops, nibbling on broccoli, and attempting to swallow a handful of peas.
