Having already done that, I took pleasure in answering him by email with a cryptic January 17!
Which brought me an email from daughter-in-law dlank in
: Is this a
conversation with David, or something else? Milwaukee
So I’d done it again – mixed up the two dlank addresses and emailed to the wrong one. Sent her an explanation and an apology: “…and it's ironic,” I wrote, “because the conversation was about blunders altogether.”
And she emailed back: A tad confusing. If the appt. was rescheduled to the 17th, when was the original appointment that you missed? The blog implied that you missed an appointment on the 18th.
I answered explaining that the original appointment was indeed on the 17th; I just waited an extra day to post the report. And then she wrote: Not to beat a dead horse, but if your original eye appointment was for 10 am, was it just literary license when you posted that you set your cell phone alarm for 12:30 for a 1 pm appointment? Or was there a calendar problem, as well?
And that’s when I answered You won't be too surprised that I just noticed we seem to have yet another blunder here. The original appointment, the one I walked out on, was indeed for The is for the replacement appointment, and I meant to email (but typed the wrong date as well as the wrong dlank) -- that it’s for Friday January 31.
So now, kids, we’ll have ten days of suspense. Will Edith get it right for the 10 a m appointment a week from Friday? Stay tuned!
