We know what you’re wondering: Which Swamplot reader is gonna
walk slide away with that gift basket of personal lubricant products?
Yes, this week’s prize — you’ll remember — is sponsored by Wet International. Shall we recap what’s in it? There’s the bottle of Wet Original, the Wet Kiwi Strawberry flavored lubricant, the Wet Together couples lubricant, and the Inttimo by Wet Total Body Shave Cream for Men.
First though, your guesses: There were 5 each for the Heights and Midtown, 4 for Rice Military and the Baldwin Park area, and 2 each for Montrose, Montrose near Nino’s and Vincent’s, “West Alabama/Bammel Lane,” Sugar Land, the West End, Bellaire, Memorial Heights, and Royal Oaks. The rest: The First Ward, Lakes of Stonehenge, Missouri City, Southdale Addition, “just outside of the West U chimney,” St. George’s Place, Southside Place, Bissonnet east of Weslayan, “somewhere over there in West Southside University Place,” on Fountainview or Augusta between San Felipe and Westheimer, “around the Augusta, Bering area between Westheimer and Woodway,” Greatwood, First Colony, Cottage Grove, the Astrodome area, Shady Acres, Pearland, Silverlake, Katy, “near the Toyota Center,” Lazy Brook, Timbergrove, Timbergrove Court, Clear Lake, Bay Pointe, “north of Beltway 8, near Ella,” “11th at Hempstead,” “the area adjacent to Audubon Place in the neighborhood bordering the sunken section North of 59,” “off Pin Oak, behind the middle school and HCC on 610,” “between the rail tracks and the West Loop east of the Galleria,” “somewhere in the Galleria/Woodway area,” and “Gillette-Sutton” in Midtown.
Happily for all of us, the winner is significantly tickled by the prize:
omg, lube! itâ€™s my lucky day!! not even kidding!!
so sad when a family wants to make the compromise between the suburbs and the city and just doesnâ€™t quite get there, as can be seen by the little ikea kid table at the end of a tiny kitchen that wishes to be like the ones in kingwood. sniff. story of my life
here goes: inside the loop, but just barely. timbergrove and lazybrook were too old and icky so these guys bought in the new developments in the area. maybe across from sterling elementary school so they can pretend they are providing a yard to their kid, even if it is owned by hisd. timbergrove court, maybe itâ€™s called? if not right there, then further down 11th at hempstead in those new suburbia wannabe neighborhoods that back up directly to the railroad. still thinking itâ€™s across from sinclair though.
my guess is that they hate this place, are sucking it up and moving out to the burbs for the schools.
Congratulations, brandy c! Yes, this is your lucky day. Enjoy!
A somewhat drier congratulations to all of you who came real close in one way or another: those of you who spotted the telltale signs of Perry Homes; of a freestanding structure; those of you who called the early aughts.
We had two entries worthy of special recognition: Carolyn — who happens to be the listing agent — sent readers not-too-far away with this fake guess:
I think it is definitely a Perry Home but possibly in Shady Acres or maybe Baldwin Park.
Then there was this second faker-outer, hoping to encourage more of you to guess farther afield:
Having lived in the burbs for 12 years this one is a no brainer. In fact I think Iâ€™ve been in this house in Clear Lake somewhere in my younger days for a house party. Iâ€™m guessing Clear Lake – the neighborhood has â€˜Bayâ€™ or â€˜Brookâ€™ in the name, which is every neighborhood in Clear Lake. Iâ€™ll go anything off Clear Lake City Blvd – Bay Pointe.
That came from Jessica, the reader who suggested this home in the first place. Great job!
Now how about a closer look?
