I am clearly an idiot for not finding this roommate earlier in my life.
First off, boys tend to have stuff girls don’t, and vice versa – and I’m not talking biology here.
For instance, the bathroom. I am a girl – a girly girl even. In the shower I’ve got shampoo, conditioner, body wash, shaving gel, two kinds of razors, a pouf, another body exfoliator, a facial exfoliator, facial soap & a pumice stone. Not much room for anything else. So what did the roomie add to that? A solitary bottle of 2-in-1 and a bar of soap.
And what about the living room? I have the necessary couch, chair, coffee table. I also possess a modest 27″ TV and DVD player. Clearly this is a room that has space for more impressive furnishings. The roomie delivered. It now holds a 47″ Projection TV, A surround sound system, VCR, DVD player & 100 Disc DVD changer. Even more miraculously – he consolidated it all onto one remote control that even a dolt like me can figure out!
Also? (And I do believe this is specific to this particular human being) When I got home last night (after being away for the weekend) he APOLOGIZED for not having put the clean dishes away, because he wasn’t sure where it all went yet!!!! Obviously his mother/girlfriend has trained him well.
Yes, yes this is definitely shaping up to be a Good Thing.
