Do Over Day, February 26th

ENTERTAINMENT - February 26th is Do Over Day and it is a mere 9 days away. It is a day to reflect on past incidents and what you would have done differently and a day to go back and do those things over again (and perhaps change them).

For example if your first date with your current lover was burgers at Wendy's and a crappy movie you could either: A. Go to Wendy's and rent the same crappy movie. Or B. Go to a good restaurant and go see a fabulous movie.

It is a bit like the CBC show "Being Erica", which is a show about a woman who goes back in time to re-live events in her life and try to change their outcome. The show feels a bit like "Quantum Leap" and "Back to the Future".

And lets not forget the film Groundhog Day in which Bill Murray repeats the same day again and again until he gets it right. Another good movie to watch on Do Over Day would be "City Slickers" in which the main character's childhood nickname is "Do Over", and the movie itself is about self-reflection.

Of course, in reality we don't have time travel, but the people who first thought of "Do Over Day" were actually scientists in Switzerland during the 1980s who while building the CERN particle accelerator paused and discussed the subject of time travel and going back to do over certain events of one’s life, should time travel ever bear fruit. The idea of "Do Over Day" is now being revisited and promoted as a day of reflection and doing over the things you liked or regret.

This of course is not to be confused with Déjà Vu Day. It is also a good day for George W. Bush to remember all the mistakes he made between 2001 and 2008 and reflect on what he should have done differently with respect to the American economy and the Iraq War.
