“That sounds great. Sushi sounded great. Isn’t it hard to get reservations last minute at these places? How did you ever get us into Per Se?” I told Jade about our first meeting at Per Se and she nearly fell over. There was a four-month wait if you were somebody. A nobody could wait forever. Obviously Jonathan was more of a somebody than I thought.
“It’s a lot easier when you hold the future of their finances in your hands. I find a lot of doors open when you’re juggling people’s money.”
