Chilli and beer

I hadn’t mentioned a horrible visit to the dental hygienist yesterday.

My client asked me to change everything we’re done from British English to American English. I’d already tried to take out British idiom and references, but there were still some words I didn’t know. For example “storey” is “story” and “whilst” is “while”.

In the evening, I met up with Alistair. We went to the Alexandra on Gwydir Street. With its pale wood and flowers it felt more like a hotel bedroom than a pub. Alistair is trying to educate me in the wonders of beer. He was able to explain in (frankly bewildering) detail the processes that go into brewing and serving beers. Intriguing, but it’s still beer. Nevertheless, it’s good to meet somebody who is so knowledgeable about the subjects of his enthusiasms. Our conversation drifted through the evening and made for a good wind-down from a wearisome week.
