Just as I was getting home from the pool, I saw the painters leaving. Then again, the drywallers were arriving.
While the drywallers clompt through our lives, I sat out on the deck with some denatured alcohol and doused Gimpa’s bookcase with it. There was a little mold. I had set out to find a small can of Naptha in the morning. No such thing. It had been banned along with oil based paint and other environmentally unsound products. We hadn’t known. The guy at ACE hardware suggested we try the alcohol.
Next, all the little metal tow trucks that had lived in the bookcase need to be washed down.
Perhaps today the painters will return.
