Emily and her boyfriend Paul, chief financial officer of a small software company, sat in their usual booth at Little Nemo's, waiting for the others to arrive. Most evenings they were accompanied by Brian and Andy, but they were always very busy in the middle of the month. They always showed up eventually. A Friday evening at this time of the month was a good opportunity for Paul and Emily to have some time to themselves, just to talk. On this evening, he was pitching the idea of a weekend getaway.

"Tomorrow? I don't know; the team might need me this weekend."

"You always say that and nothing ever happens. Face it, Emily, the magazine doesn't need you for every aspect of its existence. They can publish it without their logistics coordinator, just this once."
