Decorating AdviceSeptember 21, 2007
My in-laws don’t have a computer. And I truly believe it is because it annoys us kids so much. They are so smirky about it, too. Like, it’s a badge of honor thing, not to own such a contraption.
Which is why it’s so cute when she calls me for decorating advice. She wants to know if I think she should paint the living room a dark taupe or the lighter taupe. See, she got some new chairs… She lives 1500 miles away. I can’t just drop in on her this afternoon.
So, here’s what she is going to do. She has taken photos of the chairs; she will mail these and the paint sample color cards. Once I receive and make my decision, I am instructed to call her and give her the result. (I’m already thinking I will go with the darker color…)
Oh yea, she can do that quickly. She has that Kodak easy share camera with a crazy-large San-Disk plus the printing station. She’s high-tech on some things. Anything to avoid getting a darn PC to store these photos on or exchange them with any of us kids.
I’m so looking forward to her letter!!
