Who? Me?

They accused me of living out my dreams of decor experimentation through my daughter's recent design assignment. Certainly there is a measure of truth to their allegation, but how am I to blame when she asked me to do it?

That's right. In a pinch for time, she looked for someone to make quick decisions and do the necessary searching and running and purchasing and returning and repurchasing.

That's right, too. Decorating, though fun, is demanding. Time and energy are invested. So before you go jumping to the conclusion that life has been a picnic (after all, spending someone else's money to finance your creative ideas is not all bad), remember that I don't have time for extra jobs.

Yes, that's right. Jobs. Some people not only spend other people's hard-earned cash to see their own designs come to life, but they get paid for doing so!

And that's right, too. I am not getting paid. Did you think I would? After all, a lifetime of free haircare from a toprate stylist is a pretty good trade-off, don't you think?
