Sharky and Plastic
Following a conversation with our neighbor this morning about how unfortunate it was that our current house was listed for sale, I made a mental note to record this one in the Strategic Self-Improvement Log (SSIL, pronounced siz-uhl): No. 19. In otherwise pleasant Sunday morning conversations with casual acquaintances, cut down on the sweeping references to real estate agents as "sharky" and "plastic." It makes no difference whatsoever whether the other person takes a jab at realtors before you do.
Seriously, though, my bitterness is subsiding. I've had the better part of three weeks to decompress after learning of the imminent ouster from our happy digs, and ten days out of those three weeks have been focused on the impending move--a late June transfer of goods that should, landlord willing, settle us comfortably into the final residence we'll ever know in central New York.Posted by Derek Mueller at April 22, 2007 10:10 PM to Unspecified
