Me: (11: 24 AM) Yeah, I’ll bring the plates.
Her: (11: 25 AM) Thanks, I appreciate it. Anything you’d like to bring?
Me: (11:28 AM) Yeah, I’ll bring Nasi Goreng. Been sometime since the last time I cooked one. You?
Her: (11:28 AM) Ah, I’ll bake some cake.
Me: (11: 29 AM) Brazilian cake?
Her: (11: 30 AM) Of course!
Me : (11:30 AM). Splendid! I’ve always loved your cakes!
Her : (11:31 AM) Thanks. And oh. One more thing. As I’m coming down to the refectory at around 10:30 AM on Friday, any chance you could tell the students to bring plates, cups, spoons. etc? We might have some of them in the kitchen though.
Me: (11:32 AM) But I don’t meet the students until Friday. Perhaps you could ask James to tell the students to do that? He might have classes with them from now up to tomorrow.
Her (11:32 AM) Fair enough. I’ll do that.
Me: (11: 33 AM) Wait a minute. Hahaha. This is hilarious!
Her: (11: 33 AM) What is?
Me : (11: 34 AM) Us!
Her: (11:34 AM) What do you mean?
Me: (11:35 AM) We work in the same building, we’re both here, and now we’re communicating through emails!
