Watching Paint Dry: Painting the house, Day 1

We’re wrapping up our first of three days’ worth of house painting. It’s been going pretty smoothly but at this point I’m convinced that “primer” is just a marketing gimmick concocted by paint industry executives. I picture a bunch of stern-looking business types sitting around a conference room table:

“Gentlemen...paint sales are flat.” *hits table with fist* “We have got to sell more paint. I need ideas and I need them now. Johnson?”

“Why don’t...we make...people paint everything twice?”
*everyone else in the room gasps and begins whispering to one another in excitement*
