What happened ?

Biggest surprise, the other day I received a message from him, saying that he could have come to my job for a presentation but couldn’t finally make it.

I was happy to believe that he was disappointed not to see me, so instead I proposed a drink or a coffee in my town which is, conveniently, on his daily commute.

He replied that, with the nearly full remote work, it wasn’t on his journey anymore. That’it.

…but then, why care to send me a text in the first place ?
