I just read this thread right through to see what all the drama is about ...
And I still don't quite get it.
I'm with you, msolga.
Nothing said in this thread should have made anyone want to split from A2K, and that includes the hostile comments from the hawk. Splitting from A2K because of him is according him way too much influence. What he thinks of anyone else's relationships really doesn't matter. He's a habitually angry guy who's probably jealous of the fact that Morgan and Marco are very happy together and he's just trying to stir up trouble where none exists. If his home-life was as happy and as fulfilling as theirs is, he wouldn't be as continuously angry and contemptuous as he almost always is--he's not a happy camper. Anyway, enough about him...he's taken up too much space already.
So, I just can't believe that anyone is really going to make an exit from A2K because of this thread. And I really hope that's true. We enjoy your company, and we'd like you to stick around.
To get back to the topic of the thread...
Maybe it's me but, I'm not sure why the thought of living in a house that was formerly used as a mortuary seems so creepy. The building has been completely renovated, and it's been vacant for two years. I don't think it would bother me to use it as a residence if it were physically suitable for that purpose. But I don't think of buildings as having "lives" or "memories" of former occupants or activities--and I don't know that funeral parlors are all that creepy to begin with--a home has only what I and my family bring to it when we move in, what went on in it before we got there doesn't matter. But that's me.
And I'm not so sure Antonio would get teased about it if he lived in such a place, or that it would really bother him. When I was a kid, one of my friend's dads was a funeral director. They didn't live in the mortuary, but everyone knew what Lillian's dad did for a living and it was a non-issue among the neighborhood kids--Lillian was never teased or taunted in any way about it, it was never really talked about or mentioned--it just didn't affect us in any way, it wasn't important, and we didn't think of her dad, or the place he worked, as being creepy, he was a very nice guy.
Even not used as a residence, that building and it's property might be a good investment. I'm curious whether Morgan's bid was accepted. Does anyone know?
