I love looking at houses for sale in town. I like looking in my price range but it is way more fun to look for those in the millions. Even better is actually going to the Open House! Recently I went to one, signed-in using the name from my fake ID in college – Monica Fisher – and when the realtor didn’t follow me from room to room, I had this ridiculous urge to pretend it was my house and take pictures of me in my million-dollar home. I took a bunch of pictures of myself in the giant sunken tub and behind a massive mahogany bar. When I had seen the entire house, I left and looked at my pix. Damn -I looked good as a millionaire! I know had the fever of the dream and continued on to a second house in the development. I signed in again and went to explore this mansion. The master bedroom had a massive closet and a built-in vanity!!! I was practically giddy over it...as if this was something I was really going to buy! Yea, OK! Had I not been so preoccupied with taking photos of myself sitting on the soft leather bench in front of what looked like a movie star’s dressing room mirror, I might have seen the realtor walk into the closet-room. I was mid-selfie when she asked me what I was doing. I was red-faced and stammering something about the place really feeling like home. I pushed past her and left in a hurry. It may have felt like home but it most certainly was not! Maybe someday.....
