Since Hulu knows my a/s/l they don’t bother showing me advertisements for denture cream, diabetes testing supplies or tampons. But what they keep showing me ads for Axe Body products and Captain Morgan. I am offended that they think I’m that kind of guy who needs a drink or smelly garbage to attract women, I’m suave enough to do that on my own.
This is how negotiation works, you tell them you want to pay $300 less a month, they say no. You threaten to take your business elsewhere, they squirm. Then they offer $210 less a month, you say no, they realize you’re serious. While you have them panicking they say “2 months free how does that sound?” You think to yourself, wait isn’t that a better deal for me then I was originally asking? Then with a slightly disappointed face you reluctantly say “yes.”
The Rosalinda Lamberty Art Gallery at the HUD Offices in Downtown Buffalo
My mother retired this past week after 30 years with the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Within the confines of her office she had no less than 15 pieces of art that I had created before the age of 20. For the next few days I will put up choice pieces from my career, I hope you enjoy them with the same irony I do.
