I quite understand, Mr. Jones. And whilst I'm thinking about it, do let me apologize for misspelling your name so often. I don't like to wear my spectacles all the time (vanity, you know) and didn't even notice I've been calling you Jereboam instead of JerOboam. I'll be much more careful in the future.

Sounds like you have QUITE an evening planned. Personally, I have all my meals catered by Miss Marcia, whose dishes are a little more refined than those you've mentioned. However, I am a woman of some daring and courage. I might be persuaded to try something new. We'll see!
: Some o' that rum 'll go down good, too.
Yes, I've heard a cold spell is on the way, so I'll arrive with special fortifications.
: P.S. I hope, ma'am, that you plan to take a bath fer yer first date.
Prepositions, Jeroboam, PREPOSITIONS...one must take special notice of them, you know. I believe I said I never bathe ON the first date, not I never bathe FER the first date.
Until this evening, back atcha!
Yours in anticipation,
