This has been a week of showing people around the house for the first time. It’s not until you give a tour that you start to look at your everyday items with a critical eye. You begin to wonder what people think about — to take an example completely at random — the container of pepper spray I keep on my nightstand. What do people think I use this for, I wonder?
Kris: “Not tonight, honey, I have a headache.” SSSSSSSSS.
Gene: “Augh, my facial region!”
When in reality I use it to repel burglars on evenings when Gene isn’t home. Obviously.
