Yes, I Want to Live Here

We are currently looking for an apartment in Barcelona.

Finding a place to live is such a fun process.

You look at a few pictures online and then go to the apartment where you spend maybe fifteen minutes.

Based on this, you're supposed to agree to live in a place for a year or longer.

It's not enough.

I should be able to spend a couple nights in the apartment to get a feel for it. I want to see if the neighbors are loud, or if the traffic is loud, or if there's a ghost named Glenda who haunts the apartment and comes out at night to whisper things into your ear when you are sleeping, like, "You're looking very handsome today."

I'd love to live with a ghost named Glenda, but how am I going to find after only fifteen minutes?
