x: wow, nice. so we tape buffy or jag?

( would drive us over at usual time) or we can stay home and do Buffy with D
(and he said he’d eat oysters with them tomorrow)

x: your call…

x: you like oysters…

b: tough call. maybe since D tapes Buffy
we could tape JAG

b: oysters are hard to turn down.

b: but weeknight carousing can be hard
on me–and tomorrow I have a meeting and a lunch with Big C…

b: we had discussed his dropping by Bowl
and getting a rotisserie chicken or something–any other ideas?

quote at gecko i guess

b: should I call him?

b: i just left a message for D–turning
down oysters and asking if he still wants to get together with us for dinner

b: we still have to figure out the menu
