The Best Laid Plans...
Actual series of emails over the last few minutes with the guy who showed me the condo today:

I was waiting for the other shoe to drop. I knew it couldn't be this easy. What would he have done if I'd given him the money and gotten the keys today?
This is how quickly a human life can disintegrate. Now what the fuck am I gonna do? Deals like this just don't drop in your lap every day. I can't live in a fucking rooming house. I just can't.
