Chris and I had the following conversation this evening as we folded laundry.
Chris: I wish our walls were thicker so we could have secret passages and a laundry chute.
Me: Things tend to get stuck in laundry chutes.
Chris: Yeah, especially since the boys would probably shove stuff down it. Like the cats.
Me: They wouldn't need to do that. The cats would jump in there on their own. Especially Siofra.
Chris: And they'd scare themselves and pee the whole way down. Then we'd have to spend a lot of money to clean it out. It's probably good we don't have one.
Chris: But secret passages would still be cool.
(Although now that I think about it, secret passages are just another place for spiders to lurk. Cool in theory, though.)
