I’m going to see my house for the first time since I rented it out 2 years ago.
A tinge of anticipation, not unlike the feeling of getting a piece of (e)mail from or meeting an ex-lover, or an old friend after a long period of silence.
What will it/he/they look like now?
Is that slight deformity on the wall/forehead still there?
Does it/he/they still give you joy?
