No kidding! I can't wrap my brain around making that much money. I called him this morning to nail down details before I start making calls and so help me I'm gonna UAV that man and yes I know thats not MDC like! I was almost asleep myself from melatonin (which for me knocks me out better then a sleeping pill) when he called a MIDNIGHT. I noticed he was calm but didn't notice any dream like quality to his voice so I assumed he hadn't taken his sleep meds, one of which is the famous Ambien (people do all kinds of things while sleeping, including driving). 99% of the time I can tell when he's taken it, he'll often take it right before calling and and not tell me and even as soon as it kicks in I can tell because his voice changes to that dreamy quality iykwim. He didn't even remember calling me last light which is not unusual when he's taken his meds. I've had some fun with him not remembering conversations or even calling me to begin with. On a regular basis I get the "umm did I call you last night?" kinda calls because he saw my number on the recent calls list.
He was in the middle of a job when I called and said he'd call me back later (he told me enough on that call that I'm positive I did not dream his call since he repeated the same stuff from the night before in very brief detail) but since he doesn't remember the call I'm on the fence about asking him about the job and
the offer to go stay at his condo for a week in Vegas
(he asks me every year but we haven't gone a several years due to $$ issues, considering how much money he's made in the past 3 weeks I have no qualms letting him pay for a week in vegas
He made more in the past 3 weeks that I have gotten in the past YEAR and more in the past year then I have IN MY LIFE. Seriously, an extra $100 for us in Vegas is nothing to him at this point and yes, I'm well aware of his financial situation so trust me, its nothing to him these days)
Anyway, he's made a lot of various offers over the years while under the influence of the Ambien and not remembered it and I never bring it up since I know he tends to only say that stuff when he's out of it and he tends to spill his guts about things he normally wouldn't if "sober". He's invited me all over the place, San Francisco, Canada, Disney World in Florida, Vegas, all places he was going and would love for us to come along but I always turn him down for a whole bunch of reasons and he only tends to do it while drugged. I don't want to make him feel bad and forced to take us for an offer I know he won't even remember giving even if I know he would be fine with us coming along but this is work and not a vacation, well the vegas this is vacation but I want the work!
I'll talk to him about the work, I know the Vegas thing would come up at work anyway so I'll wait but man, I NEED that work!
