Dog & Pony

I met potential clients yesterday -- a husband and wife, church-goers, a son in high school about to make his parents empty-nesters in a few years, beaucoups bucks yet with good taste in architecture and presumably architects since they interviewed me, buying a spectacular piece of land on a rise with views in all directions, next to a small lake, they even want to incorporate passive solar for Christ sake (if you know me, you know I will love you long time if you want the passive solar).

My problem? None at all. Except that I want and need this job more than oxygen itself and kibble itself and sex itself. I'm pretty sure I was born to design their house. So what do I say to them during the 90-minute interview? I can't remember. A total blank. Except that I'm almost certain I was charming and funny and helpful and smart and likeable and clearly easy to work with.

Now we wait. Let's wait together...

The Dad,

I'm here by way of the link you posted at WaMo. I've always appreciated your comments there, infrequent as they've been. I understand and respect your need for privacy, but I wonder if it wouldn't perhaps be possible for you to get an anonymous Hotmail or Yahoo account and drop me a line sometime. Among other topics I'd like to chat with you about, I have a vision for a green home that I'd like to find a way to build some day and wondered if you'd have any input.

Respectfully yours,

I would love to discuss and visualize with you on your green home in these comments. But I cannot take a chance at even accidently revealing my true self. Not if I hope to accomplish the kind of devastation and revelation that I set out with my initial post.

Thanks for the compliment. I am now infrequently posting comments on liberal blogs as "HRlaughed" -- my current alias and alter ego. The Dad is dead.
