I had 2 rooms for rent in my ranch-style house and I was cheerful when a nice older lady told me she was truly interested in renting both of the rooms.
She explained that she wanted a single room for herself and the hour room for her vast reptile connection.
I was a bit taken aback. On the a single hand, I am not a sizable fan of reptiles. On the other hand, reptiles won’t need kitchen privileges or anything like that so they would make enjoyable house guests. So I agreed. Once the reptiles were moved in I started to have hour thoughts. Those reptiles need a lot of heat, heat equals electricity. Electricity equals cash. Thankfully, my modern tenant agreed to pay anything above average to help heat her reptiles. She also said that her pets wouldn’t need much cooling in the Summer weeks so all of us could save that way too. However, she does want to put a space oil furnace in the reptile room and I don’t want her to do that. I suppose space oil furnaces are unsafe and I don’t want a fire starting. My tenant assured me that the space oil furnace she has will turn itself off if it even gets bumped but I was still not comfortable, then finally, she talked me into letting her get a baseboard oil furnace for the room. Those seem to be a lot safer, in my opinion. Now that all of us have the heating issue all settled I have found that I certainly am cheerful with my modern tenant and her pets! Don’t tell anyone but I am even starting to sizzling up to some of the lizards. They are kind of cute.
