|Maybe not quite as small as this, but close!|
Yes, my cat has her own couch. Don't judge, you haven't seen her death glare!
But some people are actually choosing to downgrade their living spaces and are moving into places that are as small as 200 square feet. Seriously! That's the size of a one car garage! The couple in the article moved themselves, their two kids, and their dog and cat into a space smaller than my lounge room.
If you were on your own I could see it potentially working as long as you didn't have too many possessions, but it must be ridiculously cramped for a family of four. And I don't even want to think about issues of privacy and what they do when they want a bit of "grown up" time. I just hope to god they have some sort of wall put up in their shoebox so they don't traumatise the kids too much.
Therapist: So, Dan, tell me more about your parents.
Dan: It would happen at night ... always at night...
Therapist: Go on.
Dan: They thought we were asleep. We weren't asleep! The moaning! The groaning! Some nights, I can still hear the banging!
Therapist: ... um...
Dan: I still have flashbacks whenever anyone says "Who's your daddy"!
Therapist: ... you know, I think it might be best if we met twice a week from now on. Or daily! Would daily work for you?
Oh well, I suppose they have to have SOMETHING to tell their therapist about.
