The Spare Room

We pulled our sleeves up and went sorting our spare room this weekend. With the biannual "having guests around" event coming up, the room now sports a brand new sofa bed.
Sure, given the frequency of us having guests over this is a major waste. I, however, like to think of it as an opportunity. First, the sofa makes the room that thus far held the boxes we didn't know what to do with into a decent part of the house. Second, the sofa renders the room a nice escape from the rest of the house; say, when the upstairs becomes too hot to bear. Looking forward into the future, in a decade or so my son may use the room for "homework" when he brings his girlfriends over.
Still, I hold the hope that some day my friends will take the leap and come over to see us now that they read this post and know they have a place to stay. The world is full of possibilities, and this might just be one of them!

P.S. Now that we have a proper guest room in the house, I would also like to add the following note. If your name happens to be Richard Dawkins, Cory Doctorow, John Scalzi or Liara T'Soni then mi casa es su casa.
