My favorite part about meeting new people is finding out where and how they live

Though I wouldn’t extend the same courtesies for most.

I like to guess where they keep their tea and sugar and see if I can work out (in heel-to-toe steps and arms spans) how many times my bedroom would fit into their bathroom.

I like the gardens too – if they’re plain, sophisticated, or silly.

I like to guess at if the family decorated the place themselves – or if they bought it that way. And if I would keep it all the same or change it.
