Going to open houses used to be fun: it was cheap entertainment, and there was always the possibility of finding something wonderful. After three years, however, going to open houses is a necessity, but one that is not so much fun anymore. Iím more than a bit jaded at this point and there are other ways Iíd rather spend three hours on a Sunday afternoon. I donít really expect to like any given house anymore. And if the house doesnít delight us both at the moment of entry, why on earth do we spend another 20 minutes going through it?
