Ken: Mrs. Mileti, have you seen those hotels we pass on our way home from school?
Me: What hotels are you talking about, Ken? I don’t recall seeing any hotels.
Ken: Sure we do, we pass them every day.
Me: You’ll have to point them out to me when we pass them.
Ken: Okay, I will.
We continued driving and our topic of conversation changed, though I was still contemplating where the hotels were, that Ken was talking about. We turned onto a street that was about three blocks from where Ken lives, when Ken excitedly and emphatically started pointing to a location on the left side of the bus.
Ken: There! There they are! Those are the hotels I’m talking about. Do you see them now?
Me: Ken, those aren’t hotels, they’re homes.
Ken: Oh, I know that. I call them hotels because they’re so big.
The development Ken is referring to, has a plethora of McMansions lining its streets, not a single extra value home among them. All of them opted for the “supersize” option. In Ken’s opinion, they have been not just supersized, but hotel-sized. 😉
