I am usually spared these dinner parties. Client development is not my forte. Bill had come into my office just before I quit for the day to beg me to go with him. We had never dealt with a hardware manufacturer and Bill was afraid that Jack would want to discuss technical aspects of the deal. Ours was a partnership made in heaven. Science was not Bill’s forte. I agreed to go. It had been a long time since I’d had a decent meal.
