A sample text widget

Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

Are you kidding me?

This morning, on my way back from taking Schäfer to preschool, I ran into our 5th floor neighbor. He mentioned that he saw a commercial on television advertising our apartment for sale.

“Really?” I said. “Our landlord hasn’t mentioned anything about this.”

Sure, last week our landlord called and suddenly some cameramen stopped by the apartment, but we thought that was for an advertisement regarding his rental properties in general.

When I got home, I called our landlord to ask when he could come sign this years rental contract.

He said that he was out of town.

I asked when he would be back.

He said, “Actually, I’m really embarrassed to say, but my little brother would like to move into this apartment after he gets married.”

This reply was one of those “saving face” moments. If his brother is moving into the apartment, then why is it being advertised on tv?

So instead of doing what I planned to accomplish today, I went apartment hunting.

Dear me…

Ps. In defense of our landlord, he is a real estate broker. It is not entirely surprising that he wants to cash in on his investment.
