As in...
William (timestamp of email: 5:59:01.344455): Giligan, I need you to complete that Opp Buildout on the Scorpions Widget for our meeting first thing tomorrow. I know you're going to do a great job for us, and I'm counting on you. Giligan: Isn't that meeting at 9:00AM? William: Yes. Yes it is. See you bright and early. I've got a free MSN dinner to go to...
