Past and Present

Thanks for sharing this!

Mr. and Mrs. Remember Yesterday are pleased to announce the engagement of their daughter, Past, to Present, who is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Today Isagift.

Past considers herself an ancient soul, and is a history teacher at Good Old Times Academy. Present is currently employed as a memory-maker at Right Now, a division of Living In the Moment.

Past met Present at a time travel convention, and both say they fell in love at first sight. Though at times their relationship has been rocky—Past says Present occasionally failed to return her calls—they’ve since become inseparable, and look forward to a long and happy marriage.

The wedding will take place at the bride’s family home, located on the corner of Reality Avenue and Paranoia Loop. After a brief honeymoon in the resort town of Hereandnow, the couple will live in The Future, a gated community just down the road, where they intend to spend the rest of their lives.
