A conversation from yesterday:
Me: [talking about an economic run we did for a client] The capital costs didn't show up in 2009 because the well was scheduled for January '09 and the cap costs happen a month before that.
Joan: Well, they just completed the well yesterday, so the costs should be in 2009.
Me: How can the costs be next year if they just completed the well?!?
Joan: It's January already.
