As someone who has been married for many, many years, I think this story is pretty accurate!
Three women: one engaged, one married and one a mistress, are chatting about their relationships and decided to amaze their men. That night all three will wear black leather bras, stiletto heels and a mask over their eyes.
After a few days they meet up for lunch.
The engaged woman: The other night when my boyfriend came over he found me with a black leather bodice, tall stilettos and a mask. He saw me and said, "You are the woman of my life. I love you." Then we made love all night long.
The mistress: Me too! The other night I met my lover at his office and I was wearing the leather bodice, heels, mask over my eyes and a raincoat. When I opened the raincoat he didn't say a word, but we had wild sex all night.
The married woman: I sent the kids to stay at my mother's house for the night. When my husband came home I was wearing the leather bodice, black stockings, stilettos and a mask over my eyes. As soon as he came in the door and saw me he said, "What's for dinner, Batman?"
I don't really think this can be classified as "humor", more like commentary. What do you think? I agree with most of the signs at Casa D' Ice. Have you visited their site, or seen the place in person?
It arrived on Thursday. We knew it was coming, but it was much more amazing than we expected. Glowing all day and long into the night. Long after sundown, close to 8 PM it was still there in plain sight. Oh, OK, it's our new solatube we put in the family room. We plan on walling off one end of the family room and making it into a laundry room/half bath eventually.
When we went to a home show a few weeks ago the company we used (Hanley Construction) for our new roof was having a promotion where if you signed up at the home show for a new roof that they would install one of these light tubes for free. I called and asked if we would be able to take advantage of that offer even though our roof was completed the week before. At first, I was told "no", even though I pointed out that we had just paid them $15K for the new roof. They came back with a counter offer where we would pay $400 and they would do the labor for free. I was really hoping for the home show deal, and told them so, but we talked it over and I called them a couple weeks later to see what had been decided.
During the time of the roofing job someone had accidentally broken our hose reel on the back side of the house, and to replace it would be around $50, so I asked Hanley if we could take $50 off the $400 price and call it even. That was agreeable, and the appointment was made for the solatube install for April 9th. The actual tube that was installed was a CrystaLite, not a Solatube, but they are very similar in application.
Just a little side note to this story. One young man showed up to do the job and he was right on time, polite and got right to work. He did have some tools in one hand and a coffee cup in the other, but he put the travel mug down and got going. The day before my husband had done all the measuring of approximately where we thought the tube could go (we have a French hip roof, so the ridge had to be considered, as well as the ceiling beams, etc.) and gone into the attic to move the blown-in insulation out of the way, put down boards for the guy to kneel on, ran a drop cord for his electrical tools and moved everything out of the way to make the job go easier and faster for whomever might do it.
The young guy was here by 8 AM, and as I said, got right on the job. About half way through though, as he was making several trips up and down the ladder I noticed he had his cell phone up to his ear. It obviously was not a "work" call because those are usually short so the guy can work. I hate to be negative about any of this particular job because the kid was so nice and did good work. But I question him going up and down an extension ladder with one hand (or none) with this cell phone. I believe in working smart, even in a small job like this.
The other thing that I noticed was that when he cut into the ceiling in the family room he used a reciprocating saw. I have watched enough home improvement shows now to know that there are ways to cut down on the mess and dust, but the main concern I had was that this guy had NO dust mask on and he hadn't even opened the patio door to allow some of that dust to blow out. I happened to look in the room through the passage door from the kitchen and saw all this dust and asked in a friendly but astonished tone, "Where is your mask?". Hell, I don't know if there is asbestos or something in the popcorn ceiling and maybe I have been exposed to it now too!? But what about him working this way all the time?
