The humans Jamie and Mom continued to toil away today at the painting of the ceiling.
They took turns choosing music to listen to while doing the job. Mom went first and chose some Blink-182 “surf punk” music. I liked it! The driving guitars made me feel frisky. So I ate a clean paintbrush. Jamie heard me crunching away while Mom rolled the paint across the ceiling. Foiled again!
Then it was Jamie’s turn to pick the tunes. Jamie (DJ McMassacre) likes EDM, or Electronic Dance Music. Mom likes it just fine, and they painted while jamming to the club beats of Bastille, Skrillex, Fonix, and the like. I liked this music as well, (they didn’t blast it too loudly), and I did my part to help by chewing up the paper dropcloth, hiding under the ladder, and licking any faces that came into my line of fire. But, when I stole Jamie’s shoe, Mom threatened to put me in the crate for a cool-off. She’d had enough of my shenanigans!
So I decided to cool off myself.
The ceiling is now finished, and the humans are going to move on to painting the walls. All told, they painted the ceiling that flows from the kitchen, to the eat-in area, to the living room. It took almost 3 gallons of paint and nine and a half hours. Dad says the ceiling hadn’t been painted and it was “thirsty”. Jamie and Mom used a special paint with primer built-in that was low VOC. It was still a huge job. I’m so proud of them! Mom says the walls should be easier, but she’s not holding her breath.
As for me, I can’t wait to hear more music! Woof! Love, Maggie
