I reached out to an old friend that I'd be in his town and if he'd like to meet for a drink, it'd be fun to catch up. He wrote back moments later: "Love to, but I'm out of town that weekend! Leaving on Friday night." I responded to him that what I meant to say was that I was coming into town for the weekend, but arriving on Thursday night, so, if he was around, maybe we could get together Thursday night or Friday for happy hour. Only radio silence followed. Not a big deal, at least I now know where things stand.
