Different place, same Chuck
"FLASH of Familiarity" by Elizabeth Emerald

Chuck's new place --despite its backdrop being more egregiously greiged than that of his house, blanded for sale-- already feels like home.

Familiar furnishings, purchased in my pre-natal phase, garnished by garish gilded figurines and sundry statuary grotesqueries rejected by the junksters, provide a sense of comfort.

To Chuck.

To me? I can't claim disappointment; that implies expectations. What irks is Chuck's persistent care-less-ness. As in: Chuck couldn't care less that the gorgeous "galaxy" granite countertops and gleaming would-be hardwood floors remain perpetually peppered with his customary assortment of crumbled Kleenex and cotton ear plugs.

I shouldn't let it bother me; after all, we don't live together, nor would we dare to. Chuck's place is two miles from mine; close enough.

And, thankfully, far enough.
