Herer 2 things I realy like alot: fresh air & natural daylite. So whenevr Im lookin fer a new place t live, Im always intrestd in th windowage -- how many an what kindski. One o th things that atracktd me to th apartment I live in now is th fack that it gotsa lotta windows, windows facin in 3 diffrent drecktions, an a nice ovrhang all roun, sos I can have th windows opn evn when its rainin (unlessn theres a REAL strong wind blowin).
Here anothr thing I realy like alot: privacy. I hate th idea o somone lookin in my windows. So when I look fer a new place, I wont even bothr lookin at a partment on th groun floor. (Nfact, I also hate fokes walkin roun an droppin stuff above my ceilin, sos I wont nevr live inna partment that aint on th TOP floor.)
So when I firs lookt at the place Im livin in now, I pracktickly had a friggin hard-on -- cause its on th top floor an causa all th windows. Theres only one thing that cncernd me: th bildins bout a cars widt away from anothr partment bildin, an th bedroom window o one o th partments in that othr bildin looks dreckly inta one o th windows o my bedroom. I sure as hell dont want no one lookin at me wilst Im playin roun in my bedroom, ya no?
So whadoo I do bout thatski? Do I keep that one window closd an keep th blines drawn at all times? Well, thatd be fine, cept that windows th only window on that side o th partment. There usta be anothr one in th baffroom, but th lanlord was in th process o coverin thatn up by puttin in a hole new showr. I told im Id rathr have th window an a ol bafftub, but he wannad t put in that new showr. My lanlord looks like a cross btween (a) Mr Clean an (b) Doc Murk, so Im pretty sure (a) that he coud beat hell outta me any friggin time he want to an (b) that hed probly enjoy doin so. So -- bottm line -- I gots a new showr an one less window on that side o th partment.
Well, GESS WHAT! Lady lucks wit me, cause it turns out I dont hafta werry bout nuffin! Seems th fokes cross th alleyway from me are evn MORE cncernd bout ME lookin inta their bedroomski, cause theys got that window plasterd ovr sompm fierce wit some kinda thick tarplike mterial! So their windows an blines are closd alla time, an my windows an blines are opn alla time.
I gess this is a littla whatcha mite call "transalley symbiosis."
