 B PaintTheTown
 esides the Hallmark channel, my wife tends to watch a lot of HGTV. She particularly enjoys the shows featuring women who flip houses or do major reno-
vations without the reliance of men. I admit that I also enjoy those shows, as the before-and-after photos are quite amazing. She was recently inspired to paint our bathroom and vanity area. I guess she was also tired of waiting for me to do it. I had no problem with this and told her excitedly to “go for it!” For the next few days, she went about her normal household routine, all of which had nothing to do with painting. Figuring she decided not to do it, I asked what ever happened to her paint project. She looked at me and said, “I’m waiting on you.” As translated for husbands, that means, “I’m waiting
for you to buy the paint and supplies.”
So, I made a run to City Mill and bought everything she
would need for this task. I put everything in the garage and waited. Again, nothing happened. When I asked her when she was going to get started, she replied, “I’m waiting on you.” Translation: “You need to prep the area and get the paint ready.”
                                               So, I spent the next few hours masking all the hardware and trim, laying newspaper on the floor and fixing the holes in the wall. I mixed and poured out the paint, and then readied her paint tray, roller and brush. I also set up a stepladder.
     When I told her everything was ready, she was again de- layed as she needed to figure out what she would wear to paint the bathroom. I decided to distract myself and play with our dogs, Buddy and Wilson.
     She was making good progress when I heard her calling my name. She showed me the wall on which she had applied the first coat, and it was like she used diluted whitewash. I checked the can and saw that I picked up paint base, which still needed to have pigment added. My bad, although I didn’t want to outright admit it. Instead, I told her I thought the paint was defective and went back to the store.
          Of course, my wife is much smarter than that and is used to my screw-ups, so she played along so as not to make me feel stupid, which I clearly am. Upon my return, she jumped right back into her project.
      I have to admit, she did an outstanding job as the paint was neatly applied and she “cut” all the intricate areas perfectly. She was quite proud as she dusted off her shoulders with the back of her hands. Earlier, I told her that since she was going to paint, I was going to cook. When she saw that nothing was prepared, she asked what happened.
        I looked up and said, “I’m waiting on you!”
