Oasis of Calm

Nelly, Year 13

Here is my honest (slightly exaggerated) AirBnB profile, advertising a luxurious stay in my bedroom. Browsing the website recently I found myself inundated with ridiculous claims of, 'a stunningly decorated zen den' and descriptions of the, 'oasis of calm' I would experience for the duration of my stay. This bizarre notion of wanting to briefly live someone else's life left me feeling very uncomfortable and, to be honest, rather suspicious. Will I be as happy as my host on my stay? Will I be able to use her Cowshed shower gel? Will my power-showerless life become a distant memory?
