"Send me a new one, will you? While we're at it, make a green one."

(Overheard some time ago and written for safekeeping on an index card, authentically distressed with a coffee stain.)

Exercise: what's the rest of this conversation? Write it now.

Got House

We have achieved HOUSE.

Signed my name 56 times. (More or less.) Endorsed very large check. Got piddly checks in return.

Have a key ring with lots of keys on it, but only three unlock anything. They all look the same so I can't get rid of the ones that don't work yet.

House has higher ceilings than I remember and a beautiful cherry tree was in bloom outside one of the windows, obscuring the ubiquitous brick neighbors.

Pics to follow.
