As I am given more and more responsibility at work (which is secretly exciting – shhh – don’t tell Bekah) – I find myself working with these things called Leads. What they actually are are stacks of papered things- One each piece of paper is a person who needs a place to live for one of many reasons, ranging from chemo to divorce to Grad School. People in transit, generally. These ‘leads’ create a mad stack on my desk and inspire me to make many Glen Gary Glen Ross Jokes that no one gets but me.
Today I find one lead in particular disturbing and fascinating. I will not mention names specifically, for fear of the ‘man,’ but this woman is interested in in living at 71 Broadway ( a property right by ex-world trade center) – because ‘she lived there during September 11th and LOVED it!’
