At the start of the day comes the call for last-best offer on the house. I just put my bid in last night, but there is another bidder too and today is the day to find out whose house it will be. Do I want it? I’m not sure. There has been no time to ponder so I’m just acting on instinct. I halve the distance between my first offer and asking price, drop off my papers and head to work. Three classes to begin. As night falls there is no word. I am not optimistic.
