They're So Desperate, They Want To Sell My Dog A House!!
I'm not kidding. This morning we were working as usual when very unusually my cellphone rang. Very few people have that number and it's usually business, agents, studio execs and such. What I wasn't expecting was a cold call from a RE agent asking to speak to Sula and see if she was interested in buying a house.
Now I must confess that I have signed up for some of those RE websites like Zip et al just to keep up with things. The name I usually leave is Sula..last name Dog, and I never, but never leave a phone number so I haven't any idea how they got that.
If that isn't evidence that the bonfires of the RE vanities aren't upon us then I don't know what is. In fact it took us a moment to figure out just what the hell was going on.
I should have told them that Sula had a house in LA, but that she got rid of it and moved up here permanently last year. "Oh!" the agent might have said. "did she sell it?"
"No" I would have answered. It was just a one room house ,small and and kind of beat up the plastic flap "door" was torn. I threw it in the dumpster.
God knows how far it might have gone. I have no doubt that someone somewhere in this wonderful valley probably would have been able to get our 13 year old Siberian Husky an IO/ no money down/ AR loan, without us even having to co-sign for her.
