SH: What's this on your list -- "mildew paint?"
Me: The paint in the bathroom is peeling. I need to prime it with Kilz and then repaint with the leftover paint in the basement.
SH: I thought that was a summer job.
Me: I was going to do it in a few weeks when you're gone for a week.
SH: You weren't going to tell me?
Me: Why would I tell you? I've done this before. I know what needs to be done.
SH: But I need to be involved!
SH: What if you don't do it right?
Me: I had to do it with my bathroom in Memphis and my paint job lasted six years.
SH: But -- but! You don't mask!
Me: Yes, I do, when it's necessary.
SH: But why would you do it now instead of in the summer?
Me: To keep you out of my business.
