KIM: Hi. Can we start over? I went to a real estate office. I found some houses I think you might like. There’s some really nice options in your price range. (showing him the houses) This one’s on half an acre and uh, this one is older, but it has a really good view and the neighborhood’s pretty. I know moving’s a big deal. I’d like to help you out with that myself, if that’s all right with you. I can take off any day this week and I’ll pay for it out of my own pocket. Oh, this one has three bedrooms. I know you don’t want to move, but whatever house you choose will be yours. You’ll own it and the land forever. You’re right, I can’t pretend to understand what you’re going through. I’ve never owned a house. My family never owned one either. We never owned anything. When I was little, my mother used to shake me awake in the middle of the night yelling, “It was time to go.” She was always one step ahead of the landlord. I’d throw my things in a cardboard box and run outside in my pajamas in bare feet. Sometimes it was so cold my toe’s turned blue. (pause) If we’d had a house, I’d never would have wanted to leave.
