An Extra Bonus...

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Daytona Condo Realty, 386-405-4408

I posted I Want Top Floor…

It is about living in a high-rise condo. I had plenty of comments, it took me some time responding and then it was all over… or so I thought.

Yesterday we had dinner at our place with friends, immigrants from Russia like us. They live on the ground floor of a condominium couple of hundred yards from us.

They are retired, not in Real Estate and never were in Real Estate. Yet Zoya follows my posts on Active Rain. She told me that she read my "I Want Top Floor" blog post, and it was yet another hindsight reinforcement for choosing the ground floor.

But then the story turned weird.

After reading my blog, she took a nap. In her dream she saw a man in the room. She asked him why he was there, and who the hell was he, and he calmly responded that he came to wash the dishes…

- Do you wash dishes for everyone? - asked Zoya.

- No, I wash dishes only for those, who live on the first floor. 

You see, yet another compelling reason to be as low as on the ground floor...

Wasn’t it a weird dream?

But hey, if in the middle of a night you open your eyes and see the intruder, do not shoot him on the spot, - what if he's there to wash your dishes?

Nothing like an extra bonus to turn things around in interesting ways. Good luck with everything!

Laura Cerrano - thank you. I was fascinated by the story, and when Zoya insisted that this was an added bonus, I thought that she might be right, and I had to write it

Debe Maxwell, CRS - glad you smiled. I laughed when she told me that. Imagine this type of service, but only for those on the ground floor :)

Endre Barath, Jr. - except for the hospital when they performed a quadruple bypass, i never had any drugs. As for my friends, we met AFTER they bought a condo. Which absolutely does not affect our friendship

Jon, I remember when you had your quadruple bypass, it reminded me when my father had it and I know what you went through... you know I was just kidding with you, Endre

Endre Barath, Jr. - of course, I know. I remembered it because this second night after surgery when they gave me 2 pills, it was the worst night in my life. I was hallucinating, and it was terrible. I can't believe people do it to themselves intentionally. But they do

Indeed that is so sad about intentionally messing with their own minds... sad... I also remember my father had a different outlook about life, things that used to upset him were not important anymore... learned a painful and hard lesson about life...Endre

A unique dream and one that can have many interpretations. I would be curious if that dream stays with them and a meaning comes from it.

It must have been Elijah, Jon.  We leave the door open for him on Passover and the rest of the year he washes dishes for those on the first floor of condos.

Joe Pryor - i found it hilarious. Zoya took it with a grain of humor, so we were fine. To suddenly see someone you do not know in your condo could be stressful, but a thought that someone mauy come and do your dishes is comforting. Even if in a dream :)

Oh, and just for the record

I don't care if he is there to do the dishes or not

I don't want to wake up and find a man in my house.

Sharon Tara - then simply choose another floor. He told Zoya that he only goes to those living on the first floor (LOL)

Hahaha Jon! That was awesome and thanks for the much needed laugh! I could use a dishwashing-man (vaccuuming would be a bonus) in my house.

Andrea Bedard - glad I made you smile. However, I am afraid that to get free vacuuming from the stranger you might have to live n the basement (LOL)
