Dear Hillary,

Where are you going for New Years, Petal?  Fancy coming out with me to watch the fireworks, and maybe setting off a few fireworks of our own?  Could be fun, eh?  Dinner first and then dancing.  Sounds good?

Mark

Dear Mark,

I’m sorry Petal, but these days I crawl into my bunk at around 9 p.m. and wish myself a Happy New Year.  After all, 9 p.m. in Thailand is midnight in New Zealand, so I’m still on time.
