Everyone who talks to Mavin wants to know what's different and what's the same. Its practically the only conversation.

After that, that's all we talk about to each other.

There never was a Mommas and the Poppas or a Loving Spoonful because the Mugwumps stayed together and had a hundred hit songs. Cass Eliot was still alive and had an acting career as well as being a singing star.

The longest running sitcom on television was Different Strokes. It had 8 years on NBC, came back after a year on ABC and ran another 5 years only ending when the actress who played Kimberly died in some kind of drug thing. Ten years later the show came back on NBC. This time, 30 year old Arnold Jackson, a swinging, wealthy bachelor, raises his sister's two white daughters after Kimberly is killed in a car accident. A Black dad to young white girls was just as shocking in the 1990's as a white dad to two black kids was in the 1970's. People ate it up. Plus,every time people thought Gary Coleman was finished he bounced back, redefining the character of Arnold as they both aged.

Wayne Brady hosted the Oscars as far back as anyone can remember.

No one ever heard of Adam Sandler, Mary Kate and Ashley Olson or Pringles.

I am so sick of comparing what now used to be to what now is now.

Oh, right, and Airy and Mavin were a couple and were in love again. I'm him, right? Only in this timeline I was born two years later. So Supposedly if he hadn't showed up Airy and I would have gotten together. I know there's no way that was going to happen. No way.

So I've got to go to school tomorrow. Mom's taking the day off. She's taking care of some important things she says, with Mavin. I asked what but she said it was nothing I needed to worry about.

This other Mavin has just walked in and taken my life away. My mom and Airy too. I don't care if he is me in two years, I don't like him.

I'm sorry, but seriously?! Somebody crosses the time barrier and you're resentful because he stole a girlfriend you didn't have yet? I thought you were supposed to be a super intelligent child scientist! I'm sorry, but if there's something bigger than love, it's time. Where are your hypothesis, your experiments, your gathering of supplies and scientists? Have you considered alerting the media? Have you considered that when four people known something the rest of the world is soon to follow? What if they try to put your Mom away? Don't you worry that Child Protective Services is going to inquire into Mavin's lack of schooling and eventually into his lack of a birth certificate/social security number/identity? Maybe that's what they went to do... would your Mom have told you that stuff?

And who are the Mugwumps?

Why would you think I'm a super intelligent child scientist? I'm a few years ahead in school but how smart do you have to be to graduate high school? If you want a hypothesis or an
experiment ask me when or if I graduate college. For now I'd be happy to be washing test tubes and typing research notes. I'm smart enough to know that I don't know much.

As for The Mugwumps, They were a band that didn't get famous. Members of the band went on to become famous in different bands, accept that before the other me went back in time and changed history they did get famous and stayed together.

As far as Mavin's birh certficate and social security card, that is what mom was doing with him while I was at school. I don't know all the tecnical stuff but he is getting an identity in this now as my older brother. I'll tell more in a minute in my new entry.
