The Road Not Taken

On my second date with Angela, she did something I never expected. She was an executive in an international firm and we had really hit it off during our first date. But, she had been told she was being transferred to Switzerland in a month and we both knew that would be the end of our budding relationship. As we sat in the restaurant both lost in our thoughts, she looked up at me and said, "Come with me." While I admit it was tempting, something about moving half way around the world on a month's notice with a girl I hardly knew sounded like a bad plan. I declined, but I will always wonder what would have happened if I had said yes.
