Who needs a house, anyway?
Well, 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.Posted by Kevin at March 2, 2006 12:28 PM
