The last blog post talked about a young woman at a business I patronize that I've been (involuntarily) mixing it up with. I busted her, alright. I'm really satisfied with my ability to figure out where she was really coming from. My ability to smell a rat has been a traditionally weak spot in my game ever since I can recall. I am still able to patronize that business at will, and she no longer takes up any appreciable space in my head. I'm very happy about how that turned out. I've decided not to patronize this essential business so much anymore, in part because once I bust a deal wide open like I did with this girl, a gunfighter mentality takes over, and other pretty little things in these places are itching to take a shot at the master. Fat chance!
The part of the book that I'm on deals with someone from 1986-87 who really needed a bust on her deal. I could not do that, because I hadn't really worked on that part of my game up to that time. I really suffered the consequences of not being able to root out a bogus ride in a timely manner, and it was that experience with that girl that really made me work on that part of my game to it's fullest extent with the next one. The next book will deal with the girl I really made this aspect of the game priority one. I'm still drawing water from that experience to this day; most notably in my experience with the above-mentioned girl at this business I have to patronize.
