She: We’ll never find a home.

Me: I’ll find you a home.

She: But, it’s gotta be good sized, multiple beds, work room. It has to have character and charm.

Him: …and a yard. I want a big yard to landscape.

Me: I’ll find you a home.

She & He : …for under 200k.

Me : I’ll find you a home, in TACOMA.
