Jake [not his name]: So, are we still on for tonight’s Gala?
Me:Yes, we are. At what time you want to meet at your office?
J: do you think I can go casual?
Me: Yeah. It’s not a Gala, it’s a new carpet company from Spain – they host a showroom opening and provide presentation of Spanish wines. So, what time?
J: [silent for half-n-hr]Can you come over here?
Me: yes. when? the party is at 7pm
J: Are you sure those are Spanish wines?
J: the invite has a stamp of Interior Design Magazine – do they sponsor it?
Me: That just means they will distribute copies of the magazine there. What time, Jake? It’s almost 4pm already
