Chartered accountant Gordon Levey, age 37, is magically transported back in time to grade 10 and is granted the rare opportunity to actually know then what he knows now.
Gordon – Well, I did get 100 % on the test. It was pretty easy.
Alex – Sweet ride by the way. How come your dad’s letting you drive his car?
Gordon – Oh…I did his taxes for him and saved him like twelve grand, so he’s pretty happy about that.
Alex – Still, I wouldn’t let my kid drive a Cadillac.
Gordon – I know right? We’re going to be a bit late by the way. I have to stop for some coffee.
Alex - But Mrs. Walker said if I’m late again, she’s going to give detention.
Gordon - Jenny? Just bring her a coffee and she’ll let it slide.
Alex - You sure drink a lot of coffee for a kid in grade 10 Gordon.
Gordon - Well, it’s not all for me you know. I have to pick one up for Cynthia at the attendance desk. By the way, did you see what she was wearing yesterday? She looked awesome.
Alex - Ms. Grobowski?
Gordon - Yes…Cynthia.
Alex - Dude….gross. She’s like 30.
At the school
Alex – You can’t park here Gordie, this is the staff parking lot.
Gordon – Don’t worry about it. I cleared it with Morley.
Alex – Principal McTavish?
Gordon – Yeah, he owes me. I did his taxes for him.
Later that day
Mr. Sterling – Okay class, here are your projects back on creating a business plan for a small company. Mr. Levey, I like how you challenged yourself by choosing a multinational oil conglomerate.
Gordon – Thank you sir.
Mr. Sterling – However Gordon, I’m not completely convinced this is your own work. I mean I myself didn’t even fully understand that whole concept of the graduated corporate merger.
Gordon – Well sir, I think you’ll find that the financial restructuring strategy I included explains how the merger would be a success after a mere 3 to 4 years.
Mr. Sterling – Oh… I see. Thanks for the coffee by the way.
Gordon – No problem sir.
On the drive home
Alex - Hey, thanks for the tip about the rum. My parents didn’t even notice some was missing.
Gordon – Like I said, never replace booze with water. Unless its vodka, but even then, only up to 20%
water. Any more than that and you can taste it.
Alex - Got it. Can you get me some beer for this weekend? Just not that Guinness stuff again. It’s horrible.
Gordon - You’ve got to refine your taste man. Plus, no one steals it at parties.
Alex – Whatever. That reminds me. When did you start playing guitar? You sure have a lot of girls hanging around you since you started that band.
Gordon - That’s the beauty of it. I can’t really play, but the girls don’t seem to care.
Alex – You’re a genius.
Gordon – Thanks. Hey, I’ve got an extra ticket to see a new band next week. You want to come?
Alex – Are you crazy? Next week is the Poison concert! They’re going to rule the world forever!
Gordon – Fine, I’ll go see them by myself. They're called Nirvana.
Alex - Well, thanks for the lift. Oh God…my mom’s cutting the grass in her bikini top again.
Gordon - She is indeed! I wonder if she needs any help?
Alex – Go home Gordie.
