Shelley and John: Yayyyyyyyy!!! We bought a house. We bought a house.
Shelley: It has so many things on our wish list. The living area faces southwest and
John: the mountains.
Shelley: The back yard is private.
John: There’s room to park our RV.
Shelley: There’s a den downstairs.
John: It’s on a quiet established neighbourhood,
Shelley: with beautiful oak floors,
John: with two sheds in the backyard.
Shelley: Of course we’ll have to replace the roof and
John: One will be my man cave.
Shelley: take out those fireplaces. Dear God, the upstairs fire place is 71/2 by 41/2. That’s over 30 square feet of living space.
John: Imagine. My very own man cave. My very first “No women allowed man cave.” Crazy.
Shelley: Imagine. The downstair’s fireplace heats the hallway. Crazy.
John: My man cave will definitely have lights and
Shelley: My master bathroom will definitely have a shower and
John: a heater and
Shelley: we’ll update the kitchen with glossy white cabinets and
John: a fan because air con would be over the top and
Shelley: a light grey quartz countertop which is over the top and will push us over the budget but
John: I’d really like a TV but
Shelley: I’d really like a quartz countertop.
John: the shed doesn’t have electricity.
Shelley and John: Now don’t worry because I have a plan.
John: I’ll buy a long electrical cord. A very long electrical cord. Like over a hundred feet long.
Shelley: We’ll cut costs by taking down the chimney and fireplaces ourselves.
John: I’ll thread it through a plastic pipe like the one I used when installing the underground sprinkler system at Habitat.
Shelley: We’ll put on our climbing harnesses, tie into our climbing rope, borrow a sledge hammer from my brother, Shenley, and get to work.
Shelley and John: I know we’ve never ever done anything like that before but…
John: Your brother, Steve, is actually planning to do the same thing on his land.
Shelley: I’ve YouTubed it.
Shelley and John: Definitely not a big deal. Agreed?
Shelley and John: Agreed.
John: What did you just say?
Shelley and John: Oh. Oh. This S#%T Just got Real!
