The Future

So, While I was in South Carolina I was sitting around the breakfast table with my brother-in-law and we had the following conversation:

Chris: Can you believe it is almost 2010? (or something like that...I can't remember how the conversation started...could have involved Back to the Future. I was running on very little sleep)

Me: I know! Where are our flying cars?!?! (because I have deep thoughts like that when talking about the future.)

Chris: Sarah, they will NEVER give us flying cars. EVER. They have the technology...but people are too big of idiots.

Me: Hmmm...I see what you mean. Drunk drivers flying over my house...not a good idea.

Chris: Right.

Me: *flash of brilliance* Well, if they have the TECHNOLOGY, why don't they make flying buses! Then, like a bus driver could totally fly us all around to get us where we want to go! A FLYING BUS!! *beams with pride at idea. Thinking of patenting the rights...We will be BILLIONAIRES*

Chris: ...* Blank stare...waiting for me to catch on*

Me: *smiling at own brilliance*

Me: Oh...wait. That's totally a plane...

Chris: An actual Air Bus *doesn't even try to hide his amusement at me being a fool*

Me: Right. Never mind.* I really thought I was on to something here...*

So...welcome to the future everyone. We are TOTALLY flying around in giant buses. Not nearly as cool as they made it out to be in the movies.
