Life sure can be crazy and totally unpredictable leaving you feel elated yet vulnerable…and those who know me being vulnerable is difficult but sometimes you have to be to allow those amazing moments to come through the door. I say this because I myself need to believe it AND allow those moments to happen. Adonis could be that amazing thing that could happen and I still need to know that this character on the phone is real. Not only does he want me to work on designing his homes but he thinks I should be on TV in a design reality show and that he will do whatever it takes to make this happen. Never thought of that concept before, but it sure is growing on me! Maybe life has put him in my path so that I take steps towards this concept. Who knows, I just hope that this is all happening for a reason because if it falls through I truly do not want to look like a foolish person especially having put myself out there with these BLOGS…but that is/was my choice. Besides, it sure makes for an interesting quick read. Right?!
On a similar note, I have a friend of mine who is having an experience like mine but in a completely different line of work. He too had a person call him out of the blue and offer him the position of COO (Chief Operating Officer) for a hair care line. He calls this person his “Alien” because he came out of nowhere from another planet and was just a voice on the phone singing the praises of my friend’s accomplishments and skills then offered him something that sounded too good to be true. It is still in the works for him and the “start” date has been pushed out a couple of times which makes it difficult to believe it will truly happen not to mention the “no money” part. But he has met his Alien and has been in several meetings with him. My fingers are crossed tightly for my friend that success is knocking at his door and all he has to do is open it.
I just got off of the phone with my Alien (Adonis). It has been a difficult week for me because I don’t believe he will ever make it here to Seattle to actually get the ball rolling. Just yesterday I thought I would do some checking into a home he purchased in Atlanta. He and I had been talking about several homes he was interested in and there was one I believed was the one he bought. So, I called the real estate agents for this home and they told me that the home was taken off of the market and the original owner still lives there. WHAT?! Now, I feel like an idiot…am I dealing with a crazy person? An alien that really does not exist? Well, my Alien now says that he purchased a different home and promised to bring the paperwork of the sale when he comes here. He asked if I wanted to see them when he arrives and I said “yes”. His response was “then you’d better be ready to give me an apology once you see them”. Honestly, I can’t think of a time when I will be most happy to say “I’m sorry”!! However, if it is the same home I’m thinking it is still on the market and has not been sold. ARG! Does he have delusions of grandeur? I’m not sure what to think anymore because when I approach him with these findings he always has an answer without hesitation. I would think it would put him off if these things were not true and he would quit calling, but that has not happened yet. He says he just has a crazy life and to trust that he will be here soon so we can get started. Trust, now there is a funny word.
One more thing has happened to put another nail in the coffin. I actually had an interesting conversation with the agent I mention above. She is a real estate agent in Atlanta Georgia and has actually spent some time with Adonis looking for homes. She said that he kept leading her on from one home to another in regards to making a purchase and it never happened. That when he said “I would like to make an offer on that house” she informed him that she needed a form showing him proof of income. Well, it never came but the excuses did. He either had to fly by surprise to Chicago or someone in his family had died. Sound familiar? She said that he is harmless but does have delusions of grandeur. Great, now what?
I have decided to wait until Monday (September 24th 2012) to see what his doctor says about the results from tests he had taken to figure out why he still has these headaches from the car accident he had in Haiti almost a month ago. If it is a green light, then my Alien plans on flying here to meet me next Wednesday. All I can think is…is this real? Is he real? I guess I’ll have to wait and see. Come on Adonis, prove this skeptic wrong!
