No, you haven’t, not at all!! I’m simply surprised you want to help me with… curtains, that’s all. I mean, they’re only curtains! Not that you would not be entirely welcome, but I… assumed you would be busy.
Curtains? The extent of your ‘redecorating’…
Yes, you may have me for a whole afternoon and an evening. I would be most delighted; after all, you did promise me one of your Elisabeth’s fine meals when you told me so much about them. I was beginning to wonder if you’d ever ask.
Wonderful!! I hate to take you away from Maxime, but I’m sure he will manage for an evening. Is there any dish you would prefer?
