Me: Do you want to see the lantern I painted?
Kent: (Pained look)
Me: I mean on the iPad. You don’t have to go downstairs. I already blogged it.
Kent: Oh, okay! I do want to see that.
He reads the post, checks out the pictures, and says he loves the lantern pronouncing it “cool”, “colorful”, and “traditional”. He says it looks good with the living room stuff, but I should stick with the original plan of hanging it in the mudroom–and makes fun of the other brass lantern in the post.
Me: So, do you think I should paint this rod? Or maybe the chain? Or both?
Kent: I’m trying to picture it. No. I think it looks good like it is. What are you going to paint next?
Me: (Pointing) That side table is next. It’s for Fluffer’s room.
Kent: What color are you going to paint it?
Me: I don’t know. I haven’t decided yet. What color do you think I should paint it?
Kent: What about rainbow colors?
Me: Rainbow is for downstairs in the rec room. Fluffy’s room is pinks and light blue.
Kent: What goes with it? Two chairs? What if you paint one pink, one blue, and the table a different pink?
Me: (Literally patting him on the head) You just plug in your little electronic thingees and leave the designing to me.
Kent: Okay, deal. PHEW!
