Once upon a time we had a house showing. And then in the next three days we showed the house to the same people again. These people were scheduled to see our house for a fourth showing.
Time to put on the charm.
So I cleaned the house spotless. I lit candles in a few different rooms. I baked cookies and put them out on the counter with cute little cocktail napkins.
And I made a playlist for the iPod. It was a playlist of some nice, relaxing piano music. Hymns, really. I figured if the couple recognized the hymns they’d appreciate them. And if they didn’t recognize the hymns they wouldn’t know the difference. But hymns were the nice, relaxing piano music I had on the iPod.
I removed every other song from the playlist so the hymns could shuffle at a low volume.
The boys and I left the spotless house with soft music playing, we loaded up in the car, and we drove around.
The potential home owners came and looked. Forty-five minutes later they left.
When I came back in the house with the boys, some of the lights had been turned off, the candles had been extinguished and the iPod was turned off on the dock.
I thought it would be nice to turn on the music while I folded laundry, so I went to the iPod and hit “play.”
And I didn’t hear piano music. It was a podcast from our good friend and our wedding minister. And he was just giving a nice sermon right there on our iPod.
It was about then that I covered my mouth and started laughing. And I’m pretty sure I was blushing even though no one could see me.
The podcast was in the mix with my nice, relaxing piano music and I just died to think of the couple looking at our house and being surprised by the sound of a man’s voice coming from the iPod dock!
I have no idea how much of it they heard. Or if they realtor just turned it off. But my imagination is running wild and I just can’t help but laugh!
I told Todd that if we didn’t get an offer on our house we could at least hope for profession of faith!
In case you were wondering, when you want to empty out your iPod, you need to delete the podcasts separately. Just letting y’all know.
Still no official news on the house front, but we’re hopeful. And if this isn’t it there will be another one.
