Most of my husband’s things that he brought to our marriage are in the garage.  It’s a carpeted garage!  So don’t go feeling sorry for him.  His chair that he refinished himself, his camping gear, his stuffed bass, all look very nice in what I call his garage apartment, right there with the treadmill and the television.

He did have 2 chairs that are an interior designer’s dream.  He had stored them in his father’s barn, since they didn’t really go with his cowboy motif.  They were his great grandmother’s and probably date around 1890.  They are heavily carved with the bust of a woman on each arm.  The only thing I couldn’t stand was the red velvet upholstery.

“We can’t use them with that “bordello” upholstery,” I said.

“Oh yeah?  Well, what do you have in mind?” he retorted, acting a little pained that I didn’t appreciate the fine red velvet that was almost ruined from years of improper storage.

“Well, I was thinking animal print!” I announced.

“Oh!  Animal print!  Sure!  How about a big zebra print!” he teased, thinking he was proposing something outlandish that I’d never go for.

“That’s it!” I said to his horror.  “Zebra print it is!”

His mouth fell open.  “I was only teasing!”

Careful what you say!
