"Can you scoot in a little...ok, more...more still..ok, more...MORE ADAM!"

So let me tell you why I love Wymount Student Family housing so much: enormous kitchens! I do understand that humans are taller than they used to be in the 1940s, but when your parents' closet in their house is twice the size of probably the second most important room in the home (the bathroom--of course--reigning on the top of the list for utility purposes) then it is time to reevaluate the layout of the apartment. Nevertheless, there are many advantages to having a small kitchen. It is very quick to clean for one thing and you usually don't let the dishes stack up (they didn't invent dishwashers when these Ute temples were remodeled into apartments in the 1850s). So, I would just like to thank the great-great-great-great-great grandchild of the designer of our home on the corner of 900 East and University Parkway for giving my wife and I the blessing of never having to be more then ten inches from each other when we are both in our kitchen.
