Last week, I had a consultation with a structural engineer about a potential problem with my house. (Turned out to be much less of a problem than I had feared. What a relief!)
We were standing in my living room when one of his colleagues asked, "Do you live here?"
I was taken aback by this odd question. Clearly, I'm the homeowner... maybe he thinks I rent the place out?
So I answered simply, "Yes."
He said, "I mean, do you really LIVE here? Because it looks like no one lives here."
Oh! Now I understand.
"Yeah, I'm kind of a neat freak."
Ha ha ha! :D
