    I'd love for us to continue this conversation maybe tomorrow or somethin' if you're available. 'somethin'' is used v. colloquially here to mean 'sometime'/'some other time'. Not good English but in lazy, casual speech, I can imagine hearing someone slurring this, so it sounds like 'sumin' or 's'min'

    Many thanks.
