Our apartment is on the second floor of this rowhouse, and our bedroom is the room at the back.  It sticks out a little bit past the first floor, and I think that makes John a little nervous.


The floor in our room isn’t perfectly level, and it’s an old house, so it creaks.  His side of the bed is the side towards the back, so….if the house falls apart, he’s going over the edge first.


I wouldn’t say it worries him exactly, but he might not sleep well until we live in a place where he’s not sleeping while hanging out over the open air.

Flying, he can do.  This?  Not so much.  I did offer to switch sides with him, but he says that’s weird.

    I can understand his anxiety. Reminds me of the house we rented on Riggs Rd many years ago. The bathtub in the mast bathroom was directly above the sink in the kitchen, and the ceiling bulged visibly below the tub. I knew it was just a matter of time before the bathtub came crashing down. Consequently, I always did the dishes as quickly as I could.
