Who needs a house, anyway?

Deal or No DealWell, we're not meant to be homeowners after all. The deal fell through, and so we're back to scanning the real estate section.

Amy thinks it's because I demanded that the seller construct a pool and three-story waterslide before I sign the contract. If that's what caused the deal to go south, I'm fine with it. If I can't slide out of my bedroom to the pool for a quick game of Marco Polo, what's the point of even having a house?

In a related and funny-now-that-I-know-it-didn't-actually-happen story, we were almost homeless. I told our landlord that we might be leaving at the end of March, so he found a new renter and almost had them sign a lease. Luckily, we got to him just in time.

I could just barely read your posting through my tears... Real estate has toyed with my emotions for the last time!

We'll rent out our basement to you. There's no water slide but sometimes you get a little water when it rains :)

We still think that nice place just up the road ... you know, the one Amy took us to see would be great for you two. Who needs a water slide when you have a putting green!

...Ah yes, the Rockefeller estate up the road. That will do nicely. Of course, we'd have to bargain to have them throw in all those Picasso's while we're at it.

Curses! Foiled again! What a bummer, you guys. I'm so sorry about the situation. You know, you could always move out here with us to the Midwest. Prices are low--and so are the cultural and employment options. Sounds like a win-win for all;)
