It’s my Birthday. Make a suggestion. I’ll think about it.
PS: There is a way to find out what people suggest in the way of comments. For today (already) there is a “paragraph box” to the right of my headline and you can click on that to read what others say. I should have been “clearer” in my suggestion of what to ask for because I wanted to avoid the kind of suggestions one sees in newspapers or online or common places. I am sure some would be embarrassed to ask. However some women might not be embarrassed to ask for an engagement ring, etc. (LOL)
It could be as “simple” as asking for a break of some sort (ergo, the discount) on the introduction of a Purdy book of his un-annotated games (which is in the works), a first-come first serve preview of Lasker & His Contemporaries #7, etc. When it comes to blatant percentage discounts, wouldn’t the sky be the limit? I’ll think about that before saying “Nope.” Anyway, put on your thinking cap. I know this isn’t easy because it never is for me either. But you will be amazed at your creativity if you just give yourself a chance. Not kidding about this.
Gonna go out tonight for a nice steak dinner as those are rare. Table for 9, invite everyone next to me to partake! Ask them to wear a tuxedo and a clown hat. Seriously Bob, are you kidding? Yes I am.
