40 bucks and 2 bowls
(cups by Gary Rith--I really dig Mouse and Cat but they have nothing to do with this)
Steven, my carpenter extaordinaire, rebuilt this old house from the ground up. And painted it purple, clever dude, then sold it to us. Naturally I hire him to do jobs on the house as I love him. Plus he knows the place and does a fantastico job.
Today he comes over and I have all these old-house crevices up along the roof line I wanted filled in, because bees always want to nest in them. And the wife sez "have him clean the gutters while he is up there" and Steven does both, a great job per usual, and I am wondering how many hundreds this might cost and he is like
"40 bucks and two bowls" and I am like
"!!!!!" and he is like
"yeah, we need gifts for a party!"
