SH: Where's the hose for the dehumidifier*?
Me: I put it in the yard.
SH: Why? That's the dehumidifier hose!
Me: I got the stuff to spray on the pear tree and needed a hose. I put the other hose in the front yard so I can keep the grass seeds damp. I didn't want to have to detach it and move it to the back.
SH: But I had that hose arranged and coiled exactly how I wanted it!
Me: I'm sorry. I didn't know. Once I've sprayed the tree, I'll put the hose back.
SH: But it will be dirty!
Me: I can rinse it.
SH: It might still be dirty.
Me: Then I'll buy another hose for the dehumidifier. It was only about $8.
SH [deep sigh]: I'm going to have to arrange it all over again.
* which we are not using right now because the air doesn't hold a whole lot of humidity when it's only 40 degrees.
