It's 4:43 and I don't want to be here
Waiting in a Honda dealership.
HGTV playing in the background, the cheerful narration and manipulative music boring into my ears.
The couple on the screen is being told that the house they’re looking at is a good space for their toddler.
Did you know that House Hunters is entirely staged? The house has already been decided on, the show just tours you through houses that have already been rejected. The drama of realty is a lie. Is nothing sacred?
No, nothing is sacred. Not on this street, at least, with its four car dealerships and Olive Garden. I’m not saying it’s wrong, it’s just bad. Those are two different things.
God, I need an Advil.
