Tutor description

Sometimes sleeping is not an easy thing to do. It is hard to get to the exact comfort level needed in order to get into a good, deep sleep. At times, it may be too cold and an extra blanket is needed. Other times the opposite might occur and that blanket needs to be removed. Some people might even need to have the ceiling fan on and also have an extra blanket. Many people might see this as a little bit crazy, but every individual has a different comfort level than others. In the story entitled This Old House, the author, David Sedaris, leaves his childhood home in order to search for a new home that matches his ultimate comfort level. Sedaris learns several important things in his search for a new home. One of the things that he learned was finding out that when something is cheap, you can’t expect more from it than other things. He also realizes that some expensive things did not buy happiness either.

While growing up, he loved this table and the whole room that it was in, but when he turned 16, he states that he decided that he did not like it anymore.(Sedaris, 2007 par.2) This expensive piece of furniture most likely gave his parents a feeling of nostalgia.
