To really appreciate this story you have to know a couple of things about me: I love to shop, and I can’t resist a bargain, but then again, what woman can?
About a month after I quit my job and moved to the burbs, I was having lunch with Neil in the City and as I was dropping him off at work, I suddenly remembered that I forgot to tell him about my morning:
Me: O yeah, I meant to tell you — I bought a house today
Neil: What are you talking about? (looking bewildered)
Me: Remember that house we went to see last week?
Neil: Ummm yes (images of a decrepit hoarder’s home running through his head)
Me: Yep, it’s ours.
And so began my new career…
