I emailed my boss yesterday to tell him that after Prague, Venice, Helsinki, St Petersburg, Moscow, Vienna and Salzburg I would actually really rather want to go home.
His reply was: Yes, I know it's a long time to be on the road but I need you! You have a certain magic that can't be replaced by others.
Wow! Isn't that a good line or what? Talk about knowing exactly what buttons to push. Appealing to Marie's ego ALWAYS works. It seems I'm stuck on the battle field a little bit longer.
