I melted in a food court

Me: Hey, if you can choose to go back to one point of time in your past, say from primary school to university, which period would you want to return to?

Mr. Phlegmatic: *Thinking for a few seconds* Hmm… I don’t want to go back, because I’m afraid I wouldn’t have met you if I were to do so.

Me: *Stunned. Totally didn’t expect this answer* But if we are meant to be, we would have met anyway, wouldn’t we?

Mr. Phlegmatic: Not necessarily so, because I may have chosen a different path, and so did you. I may have decided to stay in Indonesia or worked somewhere else other than Singapore. You may perhaps have chosen to work in other country and not in Singapore. There are lots of possibilities, so no, I don’t want to go back.

Yes, I melted right there and then (at a food court, nonetheless. We were having dinner then.).
