There’s this one little house right near Chad. It has a basement. It has a garage. I don’t think it has a fireplace . . wait . . I think it does! I kinda know the people . . not as in “know” them personally but someone in the family worked with Vince when we lived here and when Vince told a friend that Chad had bought this house, the friend said “Oh . . you know XXXXX has that little house right next to the house Chad bought!”
Every time I pass the house, I tell Vince . . I want THAT house! After reading post after post where readers said “ask!” and tonight Vince said “Call her and at least tell her if she ever starts to sell it, you want it!”
I called! I told her who I was (Vince’s wife) because she probably didn’t even know my name. I told her that I felt really crazy asking her this but . . and I went on to say that Vince finally agreed that I could buy a little house here and if she ever wants to sell her house, I’m interested so long as Chad still lives here.
She sounded surprised but not in a bad way, but she also didn’t sound like . . I’ll give you a price next week. We’ll see what happens. The seed has been planted. That’s all I can do. It isn’t like there are other houses that I want to buy right now.
Yes, I feel like a crazy woman, but a hopeful crazy woman!
