Well done Terri.
Last season in the Nano household it was apparent that a death would occur if Nano moved into a tiny house with hubby. All spawn and their odd belongings were removed from the household. This provoked many screams of “You can’t kick me out” matched with “I’m not but you can’t live here any more and if you stay the death eaters will come.” The girl room was filthy but oddly smelled like lavendar. The boy room was clean but stunk. This smell lingered and a month later after scattering an extra large size of baking soda in that room, grinding it in, vacuuming, two carpet cleanings using Oxyclean additive and spraying a quart of Febreeze (HD) the smell was gone. The surprise that Febreeze comes in quart size and larger was a game changer. Getting rid of all the stuff required several secret agents, a van, and bribes in the middle of the night. Front porches and driveways were full of stuff causing neighbor riots.
Season ended with a cliffhanger of what happened to hubby. Where was he when everything went down and what exactly caused the events. Nano doesn’t comment.
Current season opens without hubby leaving that cliffhanger in play. A cottage industry was started renting rooms, couches and on occasion floor space to summer interns. They follow house rules unlike others who shall not be named. Mid season hubby appears watching the sunset at Bonny Doon Beach. Later at the summer intern flop house where all the interns are watching A Game of Thrones marathon the door opens. Interns panic as the stranger, formerly known as hubby walks in with a cane. Does it shoot bullets or is it a sword in disguise? It’s a cane which stumps the interns who are the brightest of the brightest who can’t figure out which button turns the dishwasher on. This distracts interns from the question of who is this man, why he has a key and what is he doing here. It is strongly suggested that they watch “The Redfin Forums” to find out. It is at this point that the interns realize they are in a reality tv show, have signed away rights to be paid, have to pay rent and really aren’t that smart after all.
At the various residences of the spawn they are discovering that leaving lights on costs money. They share their discovery with Nano who smiles and said it sucks to pay bills. Spending a dollar here and there adds up and leaves the spawn unable to pay rent. Will they end up as panhandlers on the street? Can they ask for an increase in allowance? They text each other and remember that credit card the parents gave them for emergencies. Clearly paying rent is an emergency. The elation of finding a solution ends quickly when they discover emergencies have a limit of $100. They drag out their musical instruments and discover that money can be made on the street corner playing jazz. Then they discover if they are filthy and wear bikinis or speedos the money increases. Rent is paid, eviction is avoided. Freedom might not be free after all. Viewers anxiously await the next episode to see what kind of jam they get into. They have not realized that they are in the reality show despite the camera crew following them around.
After many weeks of physical therapy it was determined that Nano has a fat pad failure on her heel that renders her unable to walk or stand unless it involves wine or a movie theater. Driving is fine but getting to the car is another thing altogether. The interns discover how to turn on the dishwasher and have meltdowns when the vacuum bag is full.
Nano continues to avoid commenting on what went down.
The drama never ends.
