That's the little tiny itty bitty sculpture Jackie was so pissed at paying $500. for...like I begged her. For four years a certain lovely Assyrian lady, who shall remain nameless, had asked me to cast her one of these. I kept putting it off till Jackie said to me one day, and I kid you not, that I should go ahead and do it for the lady because the lady was , "very insecure right now and thinks people don't respect or value her". I mean it used to take my breath away, the things she'd admit to having done and said...like she really believed our "bond" was so tight that what was good for her would of course be my guiding light as well.
Anyway...I cast the piece, and Jackie wanted one also...and I'll admit I needed the dough to go to Detroit for the art show at CARE. So shoot me...I cashed Jackie's check the NEXT DAY! As if I'm the only one who has to pay for airline tickets.
Then I show the piece to Wilfred...figure he ought to have one also. He agrees...then when I see him to get the check...he hands me one for $750. I told him he'd made a mistake, the price was $500. he smiles and says, never mind...,"I want you to have it". I said I wanted another check...for the correct amount...don't take tips. He says he doesn't have a checkbook, "why am I being like this"? At which I gave up...said I'd cash it, but I owed him the balance. In his mind he thought I would be grateful...in his mind there are big holes...in his mind he was insulting me...and seeing if he'd get away with it.
So, by the time the piece gets made and I call Wilfred...he tells me he never wants to see me again...says I'm a scumbag...says I am the greatest threat to Assyria..and all because I pointed out the obvious...things I knew about the Jackster she wasn't about to tell him...in fact, things that she told me ABOUT him...like she's telling everyone now about me...that's the way she operates...she gets something on everyone and then uses it to set us all against each other...each with a privileged "secret" about others in her entourage...each feeling special and within her "inner circle"..and each not realizing she's laughing at all of us...betraying little secrets about us to others. Who's gonna believe...do I care?
So...I send the bull to Jeff...compliments of Wilfred Alkhase. Jeff isn't as choosy...so what if I'm a scumbag...I'm an ASSYRIAN scumbag...and I'm hardly the only one.
