If you came over to my house

You would see:
Walking through the front door you would see a clean house. You're walking into the livingroom with 3 large double bookcases to the left on one whole wall. A hall on the left leads to bedrooms. As you walked in further, to the right you'd see a dining room (really just a part of the LR) with a bucket on the floor to catch drips from a leak in the roof. Looking to your right would be a kitchen. Straight ahead is a small landing with stairs leading up to the master, a door to the right leading to the garage, and to the left is the entrance to the den/family room, with more bookcases.
We’d probably feed you:
Do we have to feed you? Are you here for a meal? We would offer you something to drink right away. Coffee? Ice tea? Water? If we have to feed you, currently we'd offer you home made bread and salad. We'd offer to grill something for you, probably chicken. We'd very likely ask you what you'd like.
We’d undoubtedly ask if you’d read:
If you enjoy reading, we probably wouldn't need to ask you anything. You'll be drawn to the bookcases like a fly to honey. You'll be browsing like you are in a library. You'll be asking us about books. We will try to answer your questions.

We’d want to play this music for you:
It's very likely some kind of world music would already be playing. We could ask you what country's music you'd like to listen too and Just Me could accommodate your wishes. We could also do jazz, blues, and classical.

We’d want to tell you the latest about:
What's new with us; what has happened recently. We might talk about the bucket in the diningroom, and summer school.
We’d probably suggest a game of:
Something on the Wii, or the game cube, or the computer, or...
We might show off:
I might mention the talents of Wonder Boy and Just Me. You might notice part of our rock collection. Just Me would want you to see her CD collection, organized by country and type of music. The Wonder Boy would likely not show off at all.
We might get on the computer and show you:
The current weather radar.
If it was a long enough visit, we might watch:
Oh, you are staying here for a long visit then, huh? Over night? Do I need to find beds for you? Well, since you are here for awhile, we'd let you browse our DVD collection and pick something. It mainly features old science fiction movies or old classics. Perhaps if you're up to it we could do a Doris Day marathon? Or an giant creature marathon?
What would a visit to your house be like?
