I WANT TO BUY A PIPE DREAM HOUSE
Am I living in cloud cookcoo land? Because I would love to buy my own house. Is this the pipe dream that most people have? I suppose I can dream can't I? I hear that there are going to be one million new houses built for first time buyers. Hey! I'm a first time buyer, I don't have a penny to my name only £55 a week unemployment benefit, which never comes on time and it only last me two days at most and I still owe my friends a lot of money. But still at least I am a first time buyer. I wonder can I buy it with monopoly money? That would be great wouldn't it? Jesus Christ! What am I saying? I have no chance in hell of buying a house. Line up ten no, make that thirty thousand people and if I steal forty pound off every one I might be able to afford a house, only just though. I know what I'll do I'll buy a garden shed should only cost me £90. No wait a minute, that's no good the council will only charge me £1200 a year and that would be the lowest council tax. So it would actually cost me to live in a shed. Better off the way I am now. No wonder people get so angry with things. First time buyer no thanks I'll stick to my pipe dream.
