5 Things I’ve Learned by Letting Stranger Stay in My Basement

You Can Tell A Lot About Someone by their Trash. This one makes me chuckle every time I clean the apartment because I can tell so much about what someone did in the last 24 hours by seeing what is in the trash. 8 cups of coffee? They must be exhausted. Tylenol and earplugs? Whoops, maybe we were a bit too loud up above last night. Two six packs and a bottle of wine? Ok, ok…I’ll try not to judge. A giant pile of tissues followed by an emptied tissue box? Looks like I’d better sanitize really well. Wendy’s, Taco Bell and Chipotle? I know what they ate for dinner. A billion makeup remover wipes? Hope she was successful in her grad school interview. Cleaning the apartment after someone has left is not my favorite part of hosting strangers in my basement, but it always reminds me that we are all more alike than I thought.
