Headed out again tonight to see what Downtown Spokane had to offer.
Most places were closed, the remaining options were deserted. I guess last night was kind of a fluke for a weeknight.
Oh well, can’t win them all I suppose.
My new OKC tactic of a well-thought-out and self-admitted cut-and-paste friendly greeting has gotten it’s first positive response!
“Thank you for your message. As cut-and-paste goes, it’s far superior to the others I get.”
Since, well, OKC is the black hole of messaging for men, heh.
So, I decided I wanted to get out. But that I should go looking awesome. So I broke out the chainmail.
It didn;t get much attention. I had a drink at an Irish pub, and was wandering home when I saw this place with people in it. (Most places were empty or closed on a Monday) I also noticed that this woman at a booth inside had noticed me and pointed me out to her friends.
**OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS!** I thought and headed in with a big grin, then headed straight to their table while I saw her watching me and mouthing “OMG! He’s coming this way!”. Damned right I did, LOL.
Went right up to their table and said “I’m not that awesome, really!” and conversation ensued. Several other people from the bar came over to talk about the chainmail too.
I eventually had a seat and got a grilled cheese. They also made me a very sweet “old fashioned” cocktail which I thought was pretty good. (The place is The Observatory in Spokane. Only their first day of being open. I hope they stick around.)
It was a very enjoyable evening. From now on i’m going in armor all the time. It’s a totally bad-ass ice breaker and it’s like wearing liquid confidence. 😀
So, the house I want got another cash offer. $15k below my top offer. And they took it. Because the dumb-ass seller wants a fast close. But, chances are it will fall through too because this will be an expensive house to make into a rental.
11-7-2015, and it looks like the second offer did not fall through. 🙁
