Here are some recent conversations to solidify this house project is taking over our lives:
At a dog adoption event:
Ben: That dog is really cute, but I am not sure were are ready for all that.
Dan: Yeah, and it'll probably scratch our new wood floors.
Ben: Totally, we'll just give them a donation.
A typical day:
Dan: Where is the measuring tape?
Ben: In the Lowe's bag.
Dan: Which one, there are like a thousand around here?
Ben: Oh, um, no idea.
An average morning:
Ben: What are you wearing?
Ben: I haven't seen that in a while.
Dan: Yeah, well, all my other clothes had sawdust on them.
Regarding anything in the house:
Ben: I hate this stove.
Ben: I can't wait to get rid of it.
Dan: I know. I want to blow it up right now.
Ben: I don't want to unpack our stuff.
Dan: Yeah, let's just blow it up.
Ben: These cabinets suck, I can't wait to smash them down.
Dan: I thought we were going to donate them.
Ben: Yeah, I guess. But, I still want to smash them.
OK. you get the idea.
