Dear Waissen,

2 months ago you ordered some Portuguese white wine through me. 3 weeks ago I put the case of wine in my car and offered to deliver it to your home, only 800 metres away from me. You said you would pick it up on your way home instead.

Please note that since that day the case of wine has become a jetsetter. It has been to Koblenz and back, it was in Brussels and back, and if you don't hurry up it will have seen London soon as well. It went with me to the movies 7 times, had small talk with my daughter Laura's suitcase twice, and went shopping twice. I feel pity for it being in the boot, soon I will place it on the front seat, so I have company on my trips abroad. As you drive home at lunchtimes too, I calculated you had 60 opportunities to come and pick it up, of which you would have found me at home 6 times. I think that's the best average you'll ever have, from now onwards it will be a real lottery to see Alex at home.

Anyway today I'm here ( at least I think so )

Have a nice day
Alex
