Okay, so last week, when I thought I didn't have any plans, it turned out I had lots of plans that took up practically all of my time. But THIS week, I really don't have any urgent appointments, and so I am really, definitely going to finish my book. Before Friday, when I go down to Cambridge for the weekend's othello tournament. And if I don't, well, then you should refrain from talking to me until I do finish the thing. Send me to Coventry, unless you're one of my friends who live in Coventry, in which case send me somewhere else of your choice.
Or, if you're one of my friends whom I don't like, talk to me more than you usually do, to punish me for my laziness.
