a room within a room

Posted: 04/16/2005 in Daily Grumbling

There is a shed in my living room.

It has invisible walls, and cocoons Alex’s computer desk space. When he enters his shed, he transforms into shed-boy and does not want to be disturbed unless I am bearing light refreshments. Sheds belong at the end of a garden, not next to your sofa.

I think when we next move, we will need to upgrade ourselves to a three room apartment (or at least one bed plus den). After nearly ten years of our two room existence I think it is time we expanded. Alex is worried that if he physical has his own annexed space it will turn into a black hole and he will never see me again. He does not see what is wrong with the current situation.

But, if I am in the same room as another human, that I like, I am forced to communicate with them. Their presents disturbs me and I can’t channel them out (unlike shed-boy). So maybe the solution will be for me to have the study, my own shed, and I can temporarily disappear – study, read, whatever – and materialise when done.

It is also worth pointing out that he has a mobile shed too, his smart phone.
