Have a Pen

Taking the home office to a new level. There isn't a room at my place that doesn't have at least three pens offering my agent services and a listing sheet being used as a grocery list.
The infiltration is nearing epic standards.

Check it.

Old Man Physics

This Carbon Monoxide detector law is a decent thing. Just needs a little clarification.
Cuz first they tell you it's an heavy gas that lurks around basements & garages. Then they tell you to put one by every bedroom.
But if you have 2nd floor bedrooms - doesn't it seem a little counterintuitive?

Like how the old man used to crank on the window ac in the front room, hang a blanket at the bottom of the stairs & then scream at you for moving the blanket & letting the heat down.
And you smugly told him heat rises & then he told you a thing or two.

Well put aside your basic grasp of physics & embrace the old man's view of things.

Sure YOU have bedrooms on the 2nd floor but is yours the only floorplan in Chicago?
~ No mister - you don't know how good you've got it.

Did you install a gas fireplace in the master? And was it actually you or your cousin from your mother's side of the family?
~ Yep mister, the Old Man knows a thing or two & he wouldn't let either of you near his toaster.

Got that fancy attached garage & let the beast idle a while in the garage so you don't get a chill?
~ Old Man told you to buy American - 8 cylinders will start right up every time.

Yeah I'd buy a detector. For the price of a pizza it's better than having to hear "I told you so."

Idiot Box - Real Estate Stylee

When I get home after an 8pm showing in single digit weather I usually run for the beloved computer to do follow up. Once in a great while I'll turn on the idiot box.
And pick a home improvement/celebrity real estate show.
Hey I said this was my thing.
My fave is when they say they are "in Chicago" today. Then I get closer to the screen to test my visual knowledge by id'ing the exact location as fast as possible.
Only a bummer when they say "Chicago" but are actually closer to Rockford.

Snow Day

You know it's a snow day when you're faced by this when you open your door.
