He was asking almost 4K. Nobody would have pony’d up what he was asking. It’s possible that the price was set to placate his significant other AKA the devil’s favorite card. Had roles been reversed I’d have asked everyone to leave and taken up residence on the porch with my cell phone. Regardless, the way I view it I’m a bit closer to my shanty down payment than I was last night. HOWEVER, the only thing that will placate me is if someone puts up a loop of Chet on his bicycle with The Hounds in hot pursuit. That very possibly could alter my mood.
