Today's adventure in special caseness was priming walls for paint samples. Right now, the living room and dining room are in what I like to call a ketchup-and-mustard scheme; the dining room is ketchupy red and the adjacent living room is mustard-browny yellow. Not the color combo for me.
So, normal people, they paint. I imagine that normal people know how to do this? I feel like I need to take a class or something. Should it really take three coats of primer to block out the ketchup and hold the mustard? I think someone else, a less special case, would have figured out how to do it with less:
I couldn't figure out at first where or how to use the painter's tape. I used a spatula to stir the primer, because that's what occurred to me. I inadvertently primed my hair because I started in the middle of the wall, then bent over to get the parts of the wall close to the baseboard:
|so so weird that I'm still single...|
Tomorrow, back to the paint again. Today was priming so that I can try out new paint colors on the walls tomorrow. Tomorrow, I'm sure I'll forget something, or paint myself, or my dog, or inhale a nosefull of paint, or...generally continue to be a Special Case of the Practical Things.
