Before They're Covered In Dust
Andrew: I can't believe you got suckered into buying shoe insurance.
Me: It only cost ten dollars. And it's good for thirteen months. I know I'll use it.
Andrew: It's probably, like, impossible to redeem.
Me (shrugging): If I end up getting scammed for ten bucks, I think I can live with myself.
Me: By the way, I emailed that lady about that place.
Me: It just feels like such a long time since we've bought anything, almost six months, and I want to change direction a bit and buy larger. Maybe a warehouse or an apartment building. If I don't tackle another project you might find me sitting on top of the dining room table punching my own face. There's opportunity right now. I mean, maybe opportunity that causes hair loss and back pain, but still. Challenge is good. I'm thinking new spaces. Bigger buildings, leaner designs. I need that kind of inspiration. I thrive like that.
Andrew: Sure. All right.
Me: Great. You're on board?
Andrew: Hm? What'd you say?
Me: Nothing, I was just talking about stuff like shoe insurance. So you're in?
Andrew: Of course.
