I’ve done a bit of house painting in my day, both interior and exterior. Maybe it’s because she’s several inches shorter than me, but Candace’s painting technique differs from mine. She seems to favor hitting every spot on the¬†low half of the wall first, whereas I like to just slap it on from floor to ceiling in columns. Even the smartest of us can be caught doing something completely looney, and Candace, who probably prides herself on being the smarter roomie, is left fuming at a sudden realization.
