|Running away from troubling pride in plumbing
Booking.com is great but also not so great. Right now I’m trying to reserve lodging for an impromptu family vacation and their general description of a potential hotel is “heating, air conditioning, comfortable bed, toilet.” That’s what you put in your hotel description if you’re PR savvy enough to realize that “now with 50% less hookers” would be problematically honest.
If struggling to make a life together turns us into an atomized mess then things won’t actually be better once it stops raining. There’ll be that whole other storm to contend with.
The reviews seem decent. It’s close to the ferry. Let’s take the leap together, Booking.com hotel! I believe in you! But we really need this escape so please, please don’t be super-proud of your toilet.
