Destiny, I tell you! DESTINY!

While talking to Pete on the phone 2 nights ago:

Pete (Frustrated and exasperated after chaperoning a field trip to a historic site he hates): …I hate the industrial revolution! It’s so boring, and mind-numbing, and worthless. Why would anyone want to study the industrial revolution!? I wish it never happened! It’s so…

Me (interrupting, because he’s been going on for about 3 solid minutes now): Darling, you do realize that if the industrial revolution never happened, we wouldn’t be dating.

Pete (thrown off at my interruption): Wha…Wait, what? Of course we would, don’t be silly. And another thing, the industrial revol….

Me: No! Because there wouldn’t be telephones so we couldn’t have this conversation. And there wouldn’t be airplanes so we couldn’t visit each other. And, also! No computers, so I couldn’t have sent you flirtatious emails and made you fall in love with me!

Pete (now exasperated at me, and no longer the industrial revolution): No! It was destiny! Shut up!
