Me: Just to remind you that, as we discussed, I’m sending my invoice a couple of days early because I’m going away on holiday. It still has the same deadline though - I’m just getting all my admin sorted before I go.
Client: What you really mean is that you need spending money for your holiday?
Me: No, not at all. I’m just getting everything sorted before I leave. The invoice isn’t due until a couple of days after I get back.
Client: It’s okay. You don’t need to get defensive. I’ll pay your invoice this afternoon, as long as you tell your kids that Uncle Client is the one paying for their ice creams.
Me: I think I’ll tell them that mummy is paying for their ice creams by providing a copywriting service that people pay for.
Client: Ha! Yes, you tell them that if it makes you feel better.

But u will be hot again and u will be cold again and u will be sad again but most of all u will be happy again
