Sideswiped by DIY

Officer, I never saw it coming.

Out of the blue the heavy oak dining table-top was off the pedestal base, rolled into the bedroom, and leaning against the black steamer trunk. Contents of the trunk were stacked on and under the dining chairs.

Officer, no mind-altering substances were involved.

I just got into the flow. Forgot all my job frustrations and money worries. Cut up the creepy and creeping carpet in the dining area and hall. Pulled up the pad and yanked up tack-strips. Pulled out nails.

Next thing I knew, Officer, I was swiping my credit card at Home Depot.

Yes, I'm in possession of another Behr Concrete Dye Kit, Quikrete repair items, and suspicious latex gloves.

A little bummed I couldn't buy the dyes, cleaner/etcher, and sealer individually without the kit dvd and pressure pump sprayer. Otherwise everything is groovy.

Peace, man.

Never mind. That pressure pump sprayer will come in handy some day.

Oh, my, Seana! I could go berserk pressure pump painting horses with no name on vans decorated with shag carpet!

Well, if you do, drive that van to Santa Cruz. You will fit right in.
