Another semi-true story. In the process of moving to Texas I looked at about 30 houses in two months time. My real estate agent was ready to tell me to take a hike before we finally found the right house. To add pressure I was looking at houses and rating them in Texas while my wife was in New York and she’s the one who knows more about what is good or not in a house. I just looked for obvious things like was it about to fall over, in a good neighborhood, obvious leaks, and so on. One night on the phone going over the day’s house visits I could not think of the material that was used to make counter tops and wound up with a cartoon idea.
And no, I don’t expect the Keane family will be contacting me anytime soon to assist with art duties. They’re better off with the young kids filling in.
