big house

I'm writing a paper on buying a house that is the right size and price and came across this quote:
“We just bought this house. It’s too big. It’s like 400,000 square feet or something. We got an indoor lake and ski slope in the house! It’s just too big. There’s only me and the wife right now so it makes no sense. There’s so many rooms. We got, like everyone else, a bedroom, a living and a family room. And then you start running out of reasons why you have all these rooms. Now I say, ‘That’s the room I eat grapes in and that’s the Comb-my-hair room and that’s the Where-I-Put-My-Keys Room. If you’ll take the seventh door on the left you can enjoy the sock room, followed by the shoe rooms, the room I look out the windows of, and don’t forget to stop off by the Let’s-Listen-To-My-Echo Room, it’s real exciting!’ I’m starting to think all us rich people are crazy to buy things just because we can—kind of pointless, huh?”

Sock Monkeys

When I got to my family's house last week I learned that my brother (age 10) has been making sock monkeys. They're really funny and cute, and I finally got pictures of them. The little camoflauge one is even funnier because he made the "socks" from a stretchy book-cover. He cut out sock shaped pieces and sewed them together then cut them apart and made them into the little monkey. The blue one was his first.
