Do you live here? Are you waking up next to family? Is this the house you grew up in? Do you eat your mom’s cooking? Do you sit in your dad’s armchair when he’s not looking? Do you kick the soccer ball on the front lawn, or shoot hoops in the driveway?

Do you live here? Are you cooking in a kitchen that’s familiar to you? Do you know where all the ingredients are? Do you make your eggs with lawry’s? Do you save some for later?

Do you live here? Are you lounging on the couch on a Saturday afternoon? Do you wear your pajamas from first coffee until past lunch? Do you order pizza and watch Netflix?

Do you live here? Are you new in town? Do you go to the high school? Do you eat slices at Famiglia’s? Do you take the 6 bus to work? Do you shop at Apple Farm? Do you go ice skating on Friday nights?

Do you live here? Are you from here or did you move here? Do you go to the bar around the corner for happy hour? Do you take the train downtown to go out?

Do you live here? Are international or were you born here? Do you eat pork? Do you drink alcohol? Do you smoke?

Do you live here? Are you new to the building? Do you live upstairs? Do you work here? Do you come every month?

Do you live here? Are you here to stay? How do you like it here? Are you new in town? Where are you from?

Do you live here?
