Guess What I Am?

Give up?

As of 4:00 P.M. today, I am a HOME OWNER.

Yeah!  We paid off our house in full!  We went to the bank, and we stood there in our little Covid masks and bought a house!!!!!

Good Lord, it's strange.  I always thought I'd end up living under a bridge, eating goats, shitting in plastic shopping bags and throwing them at cars.  And I still might, but it will be because I chose to live under a bridge, eat goats and shit in plastic grocery bags, and throw them at cars.

I might yet.

Congrats !!!!!!! An achievement really

But do you have to eat the goats?

Oh Maddie, Maddie, Maddie. If you live under a bridge you have to eat goats. It is a law.

Yay for you guys!!! Here's a question for you, though. What if there aren't any goats where you're living under a bridge? Not many goats in these here parts. And living under a bridge at -30C is NOT something I ever plan on doing. I will squat in my nephew's basement before I do that. Way too cold in these parts for that, although there are, unfortunately, people who are homeless and choose to stay outdoors rather than live in shelters (more related to mental health issues and drug addiction, I think). Such a tough rough life and often so terribly short. So don't you go choosing to do that!! You've got your very own roof now so no need. And that roof comes with walls too, right? :-)

Congratulations. It's a great feeling.

Ponita in Real Life - I think the goats just show up. I don't make the rules.

Z: Thank you so much! It's still not quite real!

Beast: YOU FOUND ME! And I'm staying here, too! *shits in plastic grocery bag, flings it at a passing car*

The Mistress said...

Have you prepared the guest room for us, yet?

Except for Beast, of course.

Congratulations! We're going back to being renters again! At least for the foreseeable future! xoxo

The Mistress: I bow to you. I kiss your expensive and stylish shoes. I will eat a bug if you ask me. Even if you don't ask me. Welcome back, baybee! And be careful of my Beastie with that Febreeze, 'yotch! Aim for his stinky parts; don't blind him!

Savannah: I've been a renter all my life. I've only been an owner for a few days! I don't know how to feel about it yet. Although suddenly, having my (all original, always garaged, straight as an arrow, up and running El Camino) rodded by a professional shop is looking more like a possibility!

Congrats. Do the homeless really shit in plastic bags? Maybe a pallet of shopping bags should be sent to San Francisco. just saying
