As a language enthusiast I have often deplored the fact that languages, against all wishes, are not contagious or transmissible by any means.

Birdland-levana-cooks

First read this email I sent to the ticket office, it will tell the first part of the story: I am so sorry I made a very stupid – but a very honest – mistake. Next week is my daughter’s birthday and my gift to her was Birdland-and-dinner. I realized just a...
