We skipped off to Annie's for a nightcap, then went home. I think they had an OK time, but I was still nervous about altering their history that night. I wrote this column, which you picked up somewhere, read, and your regular schedule is now five minutes off from what it would have been if you hadn't picked this up. Something will happen to you after this as a result, something different from what would have happened if you hadn't taken five minutes to read this. E-mail me and tell me what that something is. The most interesting story will somehow be the catalyst for my next column.
