I’m going to take a leaf out of Michael Meeks’ book. No, not become an awesome OpenOffice.org hacker and fix all the bugs with a single twitch of my left nostril, but start to refer to people by a letter of their name rather than their whole name.
So the bathroom is not yet finished, nor is the flooring in the sitting-room down. It was supposed to be done before A. comes over for the weekend. He’s bringing his girlfriend over and we thought we’d make her as comfortable as possible given that A. is used to sleeping drunkenly on our couch and she doesn’t know us very well. Unfortunately, L. had a bad day in school where one of her students started waving a screwdriver at her… It’s almost comical because it was a screwdriver, hammer and a saw. So we didn’t get much of the DIY finished.
To her credit, she’ll be back in tomorrow taking control of the situation. Whereas I’d simply refuse to go back in.
