Today on Facebook, writer Alexander McCall Smith shared a link to his short story, What If, which appears in the Lifestyle section of the online edition of The Scotsman newspaper. The story revolves around the luncheon conversation of three friends--now well-established in their careers and family lives--who have known each other since college.
I found the story thought provoking, especially given the timing. As the end of the year approaches, introspective thoughts and a review of choices made are fairly common.
The story can be found at this link.
