Last night, the doorbell rang...
random guy: Hi. Is your Mom or Dad home?
me: Eh, No. (I haven't actually lived with my parents in nine years.)
random guy: Oh. Are you the home owner?
random guy: Do you live alone?
me: No. (I always say this when asked by strangers. No one needs to know whether or not I live alone.)
random guy: Well, we're washing carpets for homeowners.
me: I have no carpets in here. (I lie!)
random guy: No throw rugs? nothing?
me: No. Nothing . (oooh! I lie again!)
random guy: Uh, ok. Uh, Sorry I thought you were younger than me.
He then shuffled down my front steps and scurried to the next house.
