My Newest Superpower: Interior Design

Looking around our cramped bedroom that's painted a horrid shade of blue just this side of teal*, Hubby says, "This room needs painted badly."

I look around at the bulging and cracking wallpaper covered with a quarter-inch thick layer of pukey blue paint and at the window and door frames plastered over with the same thickly applied paint, and observe, "Uh, it's already painted badly."

*Teal is a four-letter word.

    F-R-E-A-S-T (I think it means you get to eat a big, fat, meal at no cost).

    Ok, this anecdote might be the funniest thing I have read in a long time.

  2. It would be a lot less funny if you knew just how disproportionately pleased with myself I was after this exchange.

    It's kind of pathetic how much mileage a geek like me can get out of a poorly placed adverb.

  3. Painting is like...worse than...anything.

    Totally a witty comeback though...I'm sure he didn't see it coming.


  4. Hi there! I love your blog - you're funny.
