 <p>And so I went on, for a day and a half, with short discussions with an increasing number of large media networks, and I kept receiving increasing offers of payment for an exclusive interview. In my opinion, it was very sincere of me to tell every one of the companies about the offers I received from the others, but for some reason, they didn’t sound too enthusiastic when they realized I was doing it on a regular basis. </p>
 <p>"Sir, your offer sounds very tempting. In fact, it’s almost as tempting as another offer, which I received a couple of hours ago. Wait a second, are you saying that you have a better offer? Really? Yes, it does sound better. Just give me half-an-hour to consider it. Yes. Yes. Goodbye to you too."</p>
 <p>And a few minutes later: "Hello Madam! I’m glad that I was finely able to reach you. You won’t believe it but I was this close to accepting your offer when the telephone rang, and I was offered an even better one. I’m sorry, but it’s really nothing personal. Really? Let’s see, in comparison to the other offer it’s..."</p>
-<p>Anyway, I eventually got tired of this multi-sided negotiation, and decided to take the most attractive offer so far. This offer included a sum of money that was considered very large even in terms of the other part of the world. Moreover, it included a flight to one of the big cities there, and an accommodation at a five star hotel, at the expense of the media company of course.

The main reason for that was that I had never seen any of her shows and so did not change my initial opinion.</p>

 <p>So it happened that I had to leave my country for the second time that week. After I packed my belongings, and said goodbye to my family and my neighbours, I went to the airport in a car, which was also prepared and financed by the media company. At the airport I boarded a plane that flew towards the city in which the interview was about to take place.</p>
