fair Gravity and tipsy Time -A brief fictional history of gravitational time dilation

Time and Gravity are lovers, sipping mojitos on the beach, when Time, a little tipsy, leans into fair Gravity and asks, Do you want to time travel? Gravity perks up and says, Oh yes, please!  Time stands up, collapsing the beach chair in the sand, and booms, NOW we are here.   Time waits, tick tock tick tock, and then in a stage whisper says,  And …  now we are here!

Gravity giggles, jumps up and says do you want to play a trust game?  Turn around and fall backwards into me and trust that I will catch you.  Time falls back into Gravity but nothing happens.  Time wavers.  Gravity laughs and says, wait and see,  once you move, something will happen.
