The contractor called my wife…
We need to pick out the grout to match the stone. Decisions, decisions, decisions!
So, my wife, my son and I headed off to the tile store where they had a display with 18 different colored grouts on display.
My son suggested a blue tinted grout because the stone has a bluish/purplish color in it.
I didn’t like that. Instead, I chose a light pink grout because the stone has a reddish/pink coloring.
My wife didn’t like that.
“Well, which one do you think we should choose?”
She chose a tan one. Can you guess why?
Neither my son nor I were very excited about that choice.
My wife got a little frustrated, “I don’t know what to choose! I don’t have good color memory.”
I didn’t really realize that there was a separate category in the human mind for remembering color…but, I’m a guy. What do I know?
I then got a good idea…
“Let’s go to Home Depot.”
After all, that’s what I said when we found the stone in the first place! We couldn’t make up our mind about which tile to choose at Lowe’s. Maybe it will work a second time…
“We’ll be able to actually look at samples of the stone and decide.”
That is a great idea, if I do say so myself! I am so smart sometimes…
I confidently walked to the back of the store to the stone display and discovered…
The stone is no longer there!
We inquired and no one seems to know anything about it.
Talk about getting somewhere just in the nick of time!
