Once upon a time, my sister came out to visit me at college. This was before cell phones were widely accepted. I was told when she was coming by my mother. Somehow I got the date and time PM and AM messed up... don't know where the fault was, doesn't matter.
I went to a cast party. I got home, late, but still early enough so that I could get some sleep to pick up my sister in the morning. on my answering machine I found a few frantic messages from my mother and sister. She had been waiting for many hours at the airport.
Yesterday was my sister's birthday. I had planned an internet blitz - a full onslaught of birthday wishes. I wanted it to be in the middle of the day. I took a nap. I forgot.
My sister is a great human, and even better sister. I'm sorry for late birthday wishes, Pondie. Please forgive me.
"I copy that" is walkie-talkie talk for - I understand, will do, gotcha, ok, alright, yup, uh-huh, and much more depending on the inflection of the voice.
