Talking Dictionary890. Home, Sweet Home—Seller Remorse


890. James sold their house. Eighteen months later, he and Alicia, an operating room RN, were still living in a rental apartment, still looking for another house to buy. En route to their realtor's latest "charmer," James said, "We never should've sold our house. Now it's appraised at $100,000 more than what we sold it for. All that money, gone. And everything Lily shows us is a shack compared to our old house, and three times as far from your hospital. I should've just ignored all the dogs, drums, and whatnot. It wasn't that bad. I should've just bought noise‐canceling headphones." Alicia said, "But our neighbors were driving you crazy. All you talked about was how noisy and inconsiderate they were. Now you're saying it wasn't all that bad? Yes, it was! You had a house, but you didn't have peace of mind. Let's cross our fingers. Maybe today's the day." 4.1
