If you could go back in time and change anything in your life, would you?
You know something now about how the future will turn out. And if you go back in time, you have the opportunity to bring that knowledge and follow a different route back to the present.
Sit down, my friend, at the big table. Let’s deal you in this hand of Texas Hold ‘em. In the pocket: two spades, a Ten and a Queen. And what’s that? Some blinds and a non-eventful round of betting later, and the community cards are dealt: Jack, King, Ace. All Spades.
Royal Flush. You have a winning hand. That future is irrefutable.
What happens between now and then? What do you do while waiting for the prophesied event to take place?

Marnie offers something different. She engages Anna.
