An Eternity in Second Life

It’s true that I’ve not been posting as much as usual. I feel like I owe you an explanation, but this is just between you and me. It’s a secret and I’m begging you not to tell anybody! This is one of those “once in a lifetime” opportunities and I don’t want to blow it.

I was contacted by a man who represents a woman in a royal family (you’ll understand that I need to keep the names confidential). She has $184 million that she wants to invest in a venture as a silent partner. I know what you’re thinking, but it’s not one of those scams – I have to prove myself.

First I had to give my business profile, a justification for considering me. Then I had to do a proposal that included a guaranteed annual return of 10% to the investor. Now, I have no doubt that my venture will be able to satisfy that requirement but still, I had to make sure it was a brilliant proposal.

I’m waiting to hear if she’s chosen me as her business partner – the suspense is very stressful. I promise, when this happens, that I won’t forget you or the others who have supported me so long. In fact, there’s a box of chocolates with your name on it. I’ll send it just as soon as the lawyers tell me it’s OK to sign the contract.

  3. Wow. I never get offers like that. I did have a lucky turn of events recently though, when an assassin hired to kill me decided to offer me the chance to pay him more than his employer. It was a scrape, but I managed to come up with the $10,000 and save my life.

  4. I feel it is my duty to warn you that Nigeria is a federal republic, not a monarchy. But maybe your lawyers will discover that as well…

    • Hey – I’m not the one who said it was Nigeria! I assure you this royal family exists. I plan to get them to adopt me when the deal goes through. :)

  7. Please, let me in on your venture with a “guaranteed annual return of 10% to the investor.” I have 184 Lindens burning a hole in my pocket I’m just dying to invest!
