Dudes, I'm so bummed out...

On Tuesday, I got an email from a big cheese at Nu, Nu & Nu LLP asking if I (and a bunch of other folks) were available to go to Germany to visit our client. I was so jazzed! I've never been to Europe before. Sure, I've been to China and Hong Kong but that was back when I was a snot-nosed punk who couldn't appreciate culture and whatnot.*

I checked my calendar and replied that I could go. But then, I remembered this other case I am also working on, so I checked with the big cheese on that case. Well, turns out I might be slated to do something else for that case very near to when the German visit would occur, so I can't go to see the birthplace of all good things in the auto world.

GAH!!!

*This was back in the day when I visited the tomb of Mao Tse Tung in Tienanmen Square and I wouldn't move along as directed by the armed guard there. When he grabbed my elbow and pushed me out, I was stupid enough to tell him in broken Mandarin, "Don't push me--I'm an American citizen!!"

I am pleased to see that, unlike some of your guest bloggers, your asterisks deliver what they promise.

Das ist aber schade :(

Don't worry, though! Everything happens for a reason. Germany will always be there!

Thanks, ich bin ein berliner, but I like Krauts! I'll get over it, though. I'm resilient!
