But sometimes, such as in the summertime when things tend to slow down, I
hesitated to contact my client who hasn't really had much work lately. But
on the off chance that just as I get busy this month and next, he'll have a
good deal of work, I decided to tell him that I'm going to need more than a
week's turnaround for August and September.

It's almost like I didn't want to say, "I'm going to busy this month, so if
you have work, I'll need a bit more than the usual time" but after reading
Geoff's post I did it anyway.
