Did I dodge a bullet?

I believe that you were too biased.

The client was clearly an admirer of birds, and he merely tried to inform you that a hawk flew off in his area. He just made a spelling error.

Now, not only did you miss out on making the big monies but also, the opportunity to watch a glorious hawk in flight.

I think you're right, in fact he was getting increasingly enthusiastic about it:

Like was said, you could have gone to unavailable mode or paused a gig if you weren't available.

Though if there was another reason that you didn't want to do his project (eg. if there might be a copyright/trademark reason or technical reason) you could have let him know that so might have reacted differently. eg. an Iron Man video that was not a parody might have been a copyright/trademark problem.

You should have replied "Okay you silver tongue devil, you talked me into it!" Then proceeded to waste his time for another 10 minutes.

He probably looks frustrated while seeing their 10min being wasted. 😅

Shouldn't you supposed to set availability on profile ?
So new client's can't message.

I like to decide on a per-project basis, sometimes I can squeeze in smaller projects that fit my schedule, this seemed like a project I didn't have time for.
