I heard someone use the expression the other day: "Let's do a working breakfast!" they said, without a hint of irony. I'll bet it's some nasty American fad.
Breakfasts aren't for working. Breakfasts are for grunting, farting and putting food and tea into your face while you try to work out what the hell day it is.
No, let's not do a working breakfast.
Actually, on second thoughts, yes, let's! We can 'do' it at my place. I do breakfast at 5:30am. See you there.
Richard Carter....across the breakfast table......5.30am............I think I'll take a raincheck ........(what the hell does that mean?)
A raincheck is an IOU ticket for an American Rounders match that has been rained off.
Evangelical Christians are fond of them. It's all you need to know.
