It sounded simple enough -- just watch the house. Enjoy the food, enjoy the pay and enjoy the vacation. The only rule? Just watch the house.
"That's it?" Max said. "You want me to live here all winter, do nothing and that's it?"
"Not nothing," Mr. Greenberg said. "You have to watch the house."
"Yes, but...but that's it?"
"Understand -- to me, doing this job well means the most boring winter in the history of the western world for you, Max. Where nothing happens, there are no problems and occasionally you have to shovel a little snow," Mr. Greenberg said. "Do you think you can pass a boring winter?"
It was a simple question -- a simple job. Except...nothing in life is ever that simple.
Especially this. .
