It's not about the house.

Saturday, June 16, 2007


Johnny says the door is white. He says that white doesn't mean white white. He says that "white" in painter talk, or in Irish painter talk -- or in Johnny talk, anyway -- just means cleaned up enough to stain. He says "white" means "white enough." That "like new" means "as close to like-new as you're getting, the door's ninety-three bleedin' years old for Jaysus' sake."

He said all that, and then he fell asleep.

You think he might've done one of those two things a little sooner?
