Is It Really Me?
As most of you know by now, i recently moved to a new property. It is a pretty small house but the garden is very big and that was exactly what i was looking for. After weeks of waiting for the ex-owner to come pick up the shit he left behind when he sold me the place, he finally came. I'm actually pissed off at his guys cuz they managed to leave some of the crap behind (even after 3 loads) and they knocked down 2 papaya trees that were growing at the back of the property. And then they have the balls to leave me their business card in case i need some work done on my land. Morrons. If you work the same way you clean, no thanks.
But anyway. The day he came, he brought with him the plans he had made of what he had in mind for that place. I mean there are 17 light connections, 15 plugs and 12 water points on the property. Obviously lights and plugs are inside the house i'm living in since the rest of the land is not built yet. When the plumber came, he asked me what i was planning on doing with all those connections? And i was like, hey, i just moved in and i'm just finding out about that electric and plumbing invasion. When the builder came, he asked me the exact same question. So i really wondered what the ex-owner had in mind. Was he planning on building a SPA or something?
So when he told me over the phone that he was gonna give me the plans (he's an architect) as a present, i was like ok, cool, i'm finally gonna find out WTF he had in mind.
The fact that the stairs to access second floor was going to be outside the house is something so common here in Mexico that it didnt even surprise me.
The only cool thing i saw (and still see) on the plan is the massive barbecue station. THAT is so happening. Not as fancy as it looks on the paper but i will happen.
And if my dad can make me the favor when he comes at the end of the year, oh yeah, i'm gonna have a BBQ for Xmas. Who's cooking?
