Booked a Wednesday French lesson with my friend Jeff. We were initially going to meet on Tuesday, but he emailed me a note in French that I gathered meant he could not meet on Tuesday – something about a meeting at work or he was having surgery of some kind which would severely limit his ability to drink wine with me while having my lesson.
That is simply not acceptable! If I am going to make an a** out of myself trying to speak French like a kindergartener raised in a barn then I will need copious amounts of du vin. I convinced him to change the date to Wednesday and confirmed that indeed it was a work thingy that prevented us from meeting on Tuesday. If he ever needs surgery of any kind he will need to clear it with me before I book my flight!
