Dear Fellow Homeowners,

When you are preparing your home for the market (because you probably won't die in the house you're in) you will probably do some painting. Take a moment as you complete each room and label the leftover paint according to the room it belongs to. Please also note the color and store where the paint was purchased and leave it behind. The future homeowners will kiss the ground you walk on.

"Why" you ask? Because when their 4 year old takes a black wide tip Sharpie and creates a mural of blood curdling proportions on two walls they will be able to locate the necessary paint to repair the damage quickly and easily. This will not only spare your homeowner the pain of snatching themselves bald, but may also save the life of the 4 year old in question.

This has been your public service announcement for today. Thank you and happy home ownership!

No picture? I, as a renter, am disappointed. =)

But thanks, you just gave me an idea of how to approach the issue of wanting to paint the hideous bedrooms here. I can just give the Iz a marker and then we'll HAVE to paint over the bizarre blue and green sponge-paint jobs. Sweet.

Sounds like our weekends are going about the same. Was it at least a pretty mural?
