Well, that didn’t happen either. The cards did not say it would. They suggested it was possible, with two “Yes” cards and one “No” card.
The latest word from the real estate agent is that the loan underwriter is still “working on” the seller’s loan.” Apparently the person who had been working on the loan has been fired. A new, supposedly “more experienced” person is now working on it.
Today I am asking, “Will the closing take place by the end of February?”
Let’s see what the Gilded Reverie Lenormand by Ciro Marchetti (U.S. Games Systems, Inc.) can tell us. As you may remember, cards from a red suit indicate "yes", whereas cards from a black suit indicate "no.")
CHILD (13 / Jack of Spades / No)
MAN (28 / Ace of Hearts / Yes)
FOX (14 / Nine of Clubs / No)
Oh dear. This time the cards are leaning towards a “Probably not” answer. Not what I wanted to hear at all.
With the mood I am in about this matter, I am seeing the Child as saying that my hopes for a closing by the end of this month are “childish” or “naïve.” I keep believing that it is going to happen, but it doesn’t.
The Man could be the new, more experienced underwriter. He may be more experienced, but apparently is still not terribly fast.
Finally, the Fox shows up, hinting at trickery, deception, or manipulation. Who is the Fox? The lender? The buyer? The real estate agent? It’s all rather unpleasant to contemplate!
