a day like banoffi
Yesterday a guy at our supplier's company in Paris wrote to me suggesting a conf call on a tedious subject I follow at work. This highly affable bon-vivant is a pretty cool French dood. Glancing across the lines of his email I understood that he wanted this tete-a-tete on Thursday. This was a bit of crap day at our end so I wrote back telling him so, and suggested Thursday.

I got in this morning and opened his reply, "Well the day I suggested was Thuesday, but if you prefer Friday that is ok."

Huh, I thought, and scanned down the email to check his original message. Sure enough, there in black and white, he had indeed suggested "Thuesday".

Maybe he meant tomorrow?
