Translation:How can I be calm if my child goes to the past?
Dear Umar, time travel is not sci-fi, I do it everyday, and this is what my mother always says when I do it.
If someone said this to me in English, I would have no idea what they are talking about...
It's not like pop-culture isn't chock full of time travel stories. No-one would say it to you in real life, sure, but we've all read a book or seen a movie where this sentence could easily have made sense.
i'm assuming this is an idiomatic euphemism for dying? is that right? or is this a time travel question? x
