If you were to see this house in real live, you’ll probably pass it by and not even notice it’s there. It doesn’t look half as scary or heavy as it might look in this picture, in fact it just looks lonely and dirty.
Distorted impressions happen. Like, if I go to the supermarket when I finish my shift, very early in the morning and people think I’m an early riser who doesn’t care to brush her hair or wear a coordinated outfit. They have no idea they are just dealing with a zombie.
