Of A Tuesday
Just two more guests and I'm out of the Aibnb bizness till September.
The Italian guy left this morning about 8:15, giving me a few minutes to strip and remake bed before work.
I arrived home with time to spit polish room, add fresh flowers and give the bathroom and kitchen a shine. All this in 100 degree weather, with the window units laboring mightily to keep the house a cool 80degrees in the living room, 74 in the bedrooms.
The Italian guy turned off his airconditioner and the overhead fan saying it was too cold to sleep.
Italy I don't think so, I think he came from Hell. It's never been too cold in my casa.
Now I'm waiting for the Australian.
I'm pretty sure he will speak English unlike my guest of the last three nights.
Hard going for a communicator like myself. I finally downloaded the Translate app, which helped me immensely.
At least I could express my feelings about the USA/Columbia soccer match last night. Bon mots such as "they play dirty" flowed from my fingertips.
But no app was needed for Enrico and Lucy to communicate, it was love at first sight for him.
And even though Lucy is married I detected a lilt in her voice and a tilt of her head which made me suspicious.
Then I saw her tail disappearing into the guest room and I knew it was all over for Lucy and B. At least until the next time he comes over.
She has not learned this behavior from me, I promise.
Unless she has managed to find my dairies.
We are waiting for another storm to hit with winds up to 60 miles an hour and hail.
Oh joy. My backyard has just drained out from last Saturdays tropical storm.
Gus of course rushed out into the inferno as soon as I got home and will undoubtedly wait until he is ready to wring from the rain before I see him again.
Kids. What are you gonna do?
The sky is turning black, this will be my second guest to arrive in a Wizard of Oz fashion.
Gotta run, need to put my umbrella down and start the plaintive cries of "Gus, Gus" so often heard round da hood.
