(Note: This is the first in what I hope will be a series of informative posts about various scam, cons and cheats that are making the arounds. My hope is that, through sharing my experiences, I can spare you some of the pain I’ve endured.)
Every year, through the long, cold, gray months of Ohio winter, I dream of spring, and the opportunity to be outdoors again. I pore over women’s magazines, where cottage gardens and tiki-torch lighted patios feed my fantasy life.
In recent years, one of the big draws for me has been the “outdoor room.” This is a space adjacent to your house that you furnish, embellish with plantings and light for mood so that you can relax in comfort and elegance.
In pursuit of this dream, I now have a furnished patio,
a furnished porch,
and a semi-furnished deck.
But do I relax in comfort and elegance? NO! Because what I actually have is THREE MORE FREAKING ROOMS TO CLEAN!
Rooms which, by the way, don’t have walls and windows to keep out dirt, so they pretty much have to be de-grimed every time you want to use them. Not to mention that birds seem to believe that each and every one was designed as their personal potty!
So, Blogger Beware! Don’t buy into the “outdoor room.” It’s a total scam.
