If you buy your wife a painting ...

... then she's probably going to want to put it over the mantel right away

... and all the stuff on the mantel will have to moved because it doesn't match now...

... and the big, huge recliner by the door leading to the garage is not going to match and is going to need to be hauled down the hall so you can...

...haul the big, huge chaise by the french doors in the bedroom back to where the recliner was.

If you buy your wife a painting the coffee table is going to look too "matchy" so you are going to have to haul it down the hall to the guest room...

...and haul the old childrens desk in there back to the living room...

... which isn't going to look correct.

If you buy your wife a painting the old childrens desk you have just hauled up the hall to the living room isn't going to be quite right so now you have to haul it back the hall to the entry way where there is a huge old primitive chest which you will have to...

...empty of all the buckets of agates, rocks and beach stones inside(hey, you never know when you might want to build a sidewalk or something) so you can haul it down the hall to put in the living room with the new picture.

If you buy your wife a painting...

...you have to listen to ideas about wall colors, pillow colors, putting pink pedal cars on top of entertainment units and looking for accents.

If you buy your wife a painting....

Somehow that green chair you hauled back the hall into the bedroom could be making the whole bedroom look kind of dingy making your wife tell you that perhaps she needs to paint the bedroom a different color.

I'm not saying that's what happened here last night...

but, hey, if you buy your wife a painting it's just what might happen.

Sigh.
