but the house was built too small…(redux)

there’s been some discussion over at thomas’ place in the past about the geico tiny house commercial. there’s a link somewhere but i’m lazy today. sitting on babies is draining.

anyhow, chris asked me if i live in that house because the ceiling looks like 4 inches above my head in my picture of my newly red hair. (you have to whisper the title of the picture)

well, it’s not. it’s about 9 inches above my head.

i live in a garden level apartment, and the ceilings are (at their highest) 6’4″. at their lowest they’re about 6’1″. if you’re over, realistically, 5’11” you are liable to thwack your head on a doorway at least one time (more if you’ve got a really steep learning curve). but the man who lived here before me was 6’7″ which meant he could only stand up straight when he was outside. why would you live like that?

if you come to visit me, you’ve been warned.

haiku girl said it looked like i was in space. i lied and said i was. :(

  1. It’s okay. I’d totally lie too.

    Actually I want to buy one of those abandonded missle silos in North Dakota and turn it into a sweet underground lair.

  2. silly monkey! near the baby! how many times must i tell you- never sit on a baby.

  3. It’s like you live in a submarine. You should add a few exposed pipes and things to complete the motif. Then, scream “Prepare to surface! Up bubble!” before leaving each day.

  4. Ooh! You could be like the admiral who lived next door to the Banks family in Mary Poppins!
