For some reason Zillow.com
has been sending me “10 Houses I might like” every day for the last several months (though on the weekends it is aways 9 houses I might like. I guess the 10th is very religious). I’m sure I signed up for something on Zillow and opted in for the emails, and I have to say I’ve been enjoying them.
Here’s what I do: I imagine an alternative reality in which I’m a single man without a family (though I love my family!) looking for a new place to live during the Pandemic. This little thought exercise has taught me a couple of things:
- I have a good imagination.
- Given my imaginary (though reasonable) budget there are a number of places in the area I’d happily buy.
- If I were living by myself I’d want a 1 bedroom apartment with a “den”. A den being a room without windows or a closet that they can’t legally say is a bedroom (I’d use it as a library/office/podcasting space).
Did I mention I love my family? Because I do! Blame Zillow for these little flights of fancy.
I should say, that I really do love our current apartment which is why I’m nota actually looking for a new place to live. And if I were, it wouldn’t just be me looking!
