The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Househunting (part 3.5)

A mere half an hour before the deadline, the deal foundered, and I said to myself, "Self, do I really want to lose out on this over one lousy percent of the purchase price?"

I didn't.

They sent me a counteroffer, and I sweetened the deal to the extent requested.

Unless I hear otherwise — and at this point I don't expect to, inasmuch as I have met their terms — I'm going to assume that said deal is done.

first a car, then a house... in 2006, you're buying a boat, baby!

Which leaves aside the fact that we were all supposed to be buying planets and hovercars and spaceships by now...
