So your cousins from Baltimore are flying in to NYC to dog-sit while you're on vacation? Here's some stuff you might want to hide before they get here....
- The glue traps (they won't understand)
- The bed bug traps under the bed legs (see above)
- The latest rent/maintenance bill (ditto, plus they'll think you must be rich)
- The Krug, not the red wine your client made himself and gave you for Christmas
- The handcuffs (unless you're a cop) and the only Rabbit your guests should see is the stuffed one on your daughter's bed
- Propecia and Rogaine
- Wellbutrin and Ambien
- Tooth whitening trays (and the bound book of naked pregnancy pictures you rest the case on)
- The screenplay/novel you have been working on since college
- Evidence of your second job as an Avon salesperson, even though you are a lawyer, just so you can afford to live here
