Random BSC thought

Random thought is random

Why did Watson live in such a big house?

Even before he married Kristy’s mom, he lived in a house with far more bedrooms than a guy with two part-time kids needs. After #24, here are the people who live in the house: Watson, Elizabeth, Nannie, Charlie, Sam, Kristy, David Michael, Karen, Andrew, Emily. Each with their own bedroom (other than Watson & Elizabeth). That’s nine bedrooms, and remember the third floor is barely used, so there must be at least a few more bedrooms on the third floor.

Seriously, what kind of asshole needs THAT much space? Even the fucking Pikes don’t need that much space. That’s, like, a Duggar amount of space.

I did a Google image search on nine bedroom houses. Here are a few select samples.

Dawn should forget about paper vs. plastic grocery bags, and she should start shitting bricks over Watson’s carbon footprint.

And while we’re on the subject of Moneybags Watson, why was it never mentioned that Stacey comes from wealth? She lived in a three bedroom apartment in Manhattan. That has to cost nearly as much as Watson’s nine bedroom in the ‘burbs.

(Also, this will be the last post for a while. I’m giving NaNoWriMo another shot this year. See you in December!)

    I completely agree with you, why does he need that much space? Although, I seem to recall that his mansion is his boyhood home. Maybe he inherited it, since there’s no mention of his own parents…that I can think of, at least.

    Good luck with NaNoWriMo!!

    It’s his family home, though; it’s not like he bought it. He also seems to have a small family, since his aunt and uncle left him their lake house.

    It was definitely his family home. (Ghost of Ben Brewer, anyone?) And since there’s no mention that I can remember of any brothers or sisters, he obviously wanted to keep it in his family. I’d also wager that it was at least built in the 1800’s. It just seemed to put off an older style home feel to me .
    But that could also be just in my head.

    I think it’s supposed to be one of those old Connecticut mansions or as they call them in Rhode Island “cottages”. Karen does mention having four living grandmothers in one of her books, so I think his mother is supposed to still be around. Maybe they took Lisa’s side in the divorce?
