Run! Be free!



"Come with me, Treadmill!" said Chair. "We were meant to be together. Just spin, spin, spin your belt and roll out the door! Green pastures are waiting for us. Come, Treadmill, my darling, come!"

"no kids to stink up... this Caledonia jewel."

Hmm. I wonder how the agent feels about children?

If I were in the market for a 3 bedroom 2 bath home (because I had kids) I doubt that I'd choose this guy to help me look at houses.

At least he's honest.

I think the agent pictures the toddlers in the "backyard with pond"..."making children's play options convenient". See, the agent loves kids.

I like to think of it as expanding upon its injokes. I still remember the long-lamented "Dysfunctional Family Circus," where the jokes about Bil's special friend "Uncle Roy" gained a life of their own.

Thanks to this blog, I see CHAIR everywhere. Too bad they're not in listings, or I could finally contribute.

Yeah, the guy really isn't trying to appeal to families, is he? Or animal lovers, or apparently anyone that likes a color other than a variation of beige.

Nice enough house, and clearly what the agent meant was that there hadn't been any kids living there to "ding it up". A great way to convey that without sending such a "And leave your freaking rug rats at home if you come to see it. I hate children." vibe is by saying, "Like new, in pristine condition. This home shows no wear."

Because you know what doesn't score many commissions? Insulting people's lifestyle choices, their kids, or their pets. Even by implication. Not smart, dude.

I can blame this blog for the strange dream I had last night. I dreamt that I was shooting at things (trees, for some reason) with a sniper rifle and took aim at one of those white plastic chairs that are so often in these real estate listings. Unfortunately, I missed.

I've been looking for a treadmill that comes with a house...

It's actually an art gallery - incomprehensible objects and interesting shadows.

We are getting ready to list our house. Your blog is giving me a very good idea of what NOT to do.
