Houses Are Not Human: Interview Inspires Confusion, Dismay

We've already seen a sneak preview of this year's Decorator Showcase House—a 1905 Italianate-style Pac Heights manse—and commenters chimed in with a lively debate on the 16,000 square foot structure and the definition of "McMansions." Would a McMansion be covered in pink stucco? Maybe so. At some point, however, a line must be drawn in the sand: The showcase approaches this weekend, and to honor the great event, the Chron effectively anthropomorphized the house in an exclusive, WTF-inspiring interview with its ... walls. As in, "if these walls could talk." (As in, that's the name of the article.) Whimsical journalism, ghost whispering, or schizophrenic breakdown? You tell us.
