Chiming in

It’s been a while since I’ve said anything on here lately so I thought I’d better chime in and give you my perspective on recent events.

First of all, when describing the “Wall of Death,” Steve failed to mention the fact that I’m afraid of heights! The staircase makes a 90 degree turn right by the wall of death so the stairs are triangular there making it difficult to fit both legs of a ladder. Plus, we didn’t know where the studs were and I didn’t want too much weight against the drywall, so I didn’t want too much pitch. As I climbed the ladder, I thought to myself “this is really stupid. This is how people break their legs or their back.” Steve must have had the same thought cause his question to me was “is your life insurance policy paid up?” The first several trips up the ladder with a brush or roller in my hand were nerve-wracking. My legs were totally shaking! But then I got more confidant and much more comfortable.

Secondly, some of you may have already guessed this, but the reason I’m the only one in any of the painting photos is because I was the only one painting much of the time!! But Steve is a hell of a taper. I hate taping. If he didn’t do it, I would just eyeball it and cut in.

I guess taping does not qualify for photo taking.
