“You really need to focus on the view,” Wendy said.
“Yes, let’s focus on the view,” I said, “and not on the fact that there are only two exterior walls standing, no roof, no windows, no doors, no electricity, and no plumbing.”
“I told you it was a fixer upper,” Wendy said, “but you need to use your imagination. Think of it as an investment. With a little bit of sweat equity, you’ll be able to get your dream home with a killer view. And best of all, you could put your own stamp on.”
“When I told you, Wendy, that I wanted you to show me a house with a view, I was expecting you to show me a habitable house, not a stone ruin,” I said. “And, Wendy, if I wanted to put my stamp on something, I’d buy an envelope.”
