I'm vaguely considering moving house, because I seemingly feel that I don't have enough stress in my life already... anyway, to this end I was browsing online with my mother looking at various properties. "Oh look", she exclaimed, "this one has a playroom".
"Um, a what?" I replied, wondering whether it was common to advertise such things, how well equipped it was, whether there were any photos of it, and why I had never considered putting "playroom" on my list of required attributes for any future house purchase.
"Yes", replied my darling mother, "but you don't want kids, so you could just use it as a dining room or something."
At that point, of course, I realised that the house had a playroom in the more traditional sense of the word: for small children to store their toys and play in. Shame really. The other sort sounds much more fun.
