A NORTHERN man is in shock after his friend’s house was revealed to be not just nice for London but actually nice.
Nathan Muir of Yorkshire confessed to being taken aback when Carolyn Ryan’s new home elicited not fake compliments borne of pity, but sincere praise.
He said: “It’s London. I know the drill.
“I’ve stood on a nine-by-six chunk of roof saying it was an incredible outdoor space perfect for parties, I’ve called areas where I feared for my life as ‘vibrant’, and told my sister her £320k studio apartment – it’s a bedsit – was fantastically close to Waitrose.
“But not only was Carolyn’s house decent-sized, three bedrooms and gardens front and back, it was actually pleasant. And the breathtaking views of the city skyline mean it wasn’t nice despite London. Somehow it was nice because of London.
“It’s almost as if, in some ways, living in London could be viewed positively. My God. This house is dangerous.”
Muir’s friend Carolyn Ryan said: “Like all Londoners with a nice house, I had to do horribly dark things so that I can afford it. Evil, corporate things.”
