Iím spending the weekend at the house of a new-ish friend who lives out of state. She picks me up at the bus station and tells me, on the ride over, to excuse the disarray of the house. I figure itís just the standard disclaimer many people feel obliged to drag out when they have guests, even if everything is in place. But as soon as I cross the threshold into the small entryway, I realize itís not lip service. As Bette Davis would say, ďWhat a dump.Ē I canít believe people above the age of 2 live like this.
