Ha! We eeee ll……. I was at a client’s public open house recently in New Rochelle… She really didn’t want an open house.. Dug her feet in… I persisted, and persisted, and persisted, and she gave in… We had the usual nosy neighbors, people looking for ‘other’ people…. but at the end of the day, my client realized, she had survived the open house, it wasn’t so bad, and we had sat and laughed around those visitors for the 3 hours.. all good! (My client is always there for appointments – another story..)…. She brought down 3 Armani suits… Oh My! ‘Gay, I want you to have these”. She says. ” Pour moi? ” says I…..They are lovely.. and I will wear them with love and pride (once I let them out just a little….)..
Another client knew I hadn’t eaten lunch when I was with them one day this week.. the next day, I was at their home, and she put a tin foil wrapper in my hand.. ‘Gay “I know you didn’t have lunch yesterday, I made you a meatball sandwich..” Oh my… Yum, yum, yummy.. THE most delicious meatball sandwich ever.. perhaps because I didn’t make it, or it was made with love.. or it was just plain delicious (that is /was the answer – it was delicious and I am getting that recipe)…. and oops, I think I will have to let out those Armani suits just a little bit more.
P.S. I showed the house to the brother of one of those visitors from the open house tonight and after they left..my client said “Let’s have another open house..” Oh my! My other client (we had inspections yesterday) wants to make me a tray of meatballs (oh my my .. I will never get into those suits)
New Rochelle is GREAT!
