Would you like to have something to drink? Yes, please, that would be very nice. Do you have any hot coffee? I'm sorry, we don't have any coffee. Would tea be alright? Yes, that would be fine. Is there anything else I can offer you? Would you like some light refreshments? No, no, no. Actually, I'll just have some tea if that is not too much trouble. I had a very late and very large lunch, so I don't expect to eat anything else for the remainder of the day. I know you're probably fighting off your jet lag, but I'm wondering what time we should set for our budget review. What time are you available tomorrow for our meeting? Don't worry about me. I'll try to hit the sack a little early tonight and I'll be fine by the time tomorrow comes. I have a meeting early on, but I should be available after 11 o'clock.
