John and Mary were homeowners who decided to tackle some home improvement projects themselves. One weekend, they decided to paint their living room.
John said, “I’ll take care of the walls, and you can paint the ceiling.”
Mary agreed, and they got to work. A few hours later, John called Mary over to admire his work. The walls looked fantastic, with smooth, even coats of paint.
Mary, on the other hand, had paint all over herself. Her hair was a mess, and she was covered in paint splatters.
John laughed and said, “What happened to you? I thought you were just painting the ceiling.”
Mary sighed and replied, “I was, but then I decided to paint the floor, too, because I accidentally spilled some paint. But don’t worry, I’m planning to paint myself next, so I match the room!”
