Life would have been different

The first week of my internship on the FrontPage team two years ago, in my introductory email to the team, I mentioned that I enjoyed board games, which prompted someone on the team to mention the Thursday Night Board Gamers that met weekly (he wasn't even a part of it; he just knew they existed). Were it not for that, my life would have been very different. I'd no longer have a weekly social activity, I wouldn't have met a very significant portion of my non-coworker friends, I wouldn't have gotten to play a ton of interesting games, and I'd no longer be playing World of Warcraft. Basically, I don't know what my life would be like outside of work right now if it weren't for him telling me about Thursdays.

Ah but thats assuming that only one path can get you to a destination - and there are many paths (to Thursday night board games).

True. I figure that I probably would have found out about it anyway when I saw people playing games in the atrium near my office several months ago.
