Country singers should expand their repertoire. Taylor Swift may sing "today was a fairy tale," but she's never said anything about the days the windows arrived for her house. Maybe she just isn't to that stage of life yet.
Not only that, but it's a pretty exciting moment in time. I mean, tell me you wouldn't have peed your pants to see several construction workers carry something like this into your rapidly rising home?
I can honestly say that I never thought I would've been so excited to see some wood and glass show up at my residence. I think it was partly due to last night's dilemma.
But it was also an indication that I picked something that turned out nicely. I really LIKE what I chose.
And I need a lot of reassurance.
Thankfully, there was a little more to be had.
This is the back of my house, and you should note that it is covered in shingles.
It's a big deal.
Come to think of it, "Hey my house was roofed" sounds like a great song title.
Get to writing, Taylor. We'll talk royalties later.
The current payoff is this: I really like the shingle color. So that's also a win.
But it's coming together faster than I would've imagined.
Instead of "Walking in Memphis," Marc Cohen needs to consider something like "Seeing My House." Now that's a tune worth committing to memory.
The guys also got a decent start on my front porch today. It's the one thing that is holding up the roof.
Ah...a front porch. Nothing says southern living quite like a front porch.
Can you see yourself sitting out there with me? Holding a glass of tea? We would probably discuss the weather. Or my need to be an American Idol. Just whatever.
The point is, WE WOULD BE SITTING ON MY PORCH. I love the idea of it.
What I don't love?
Can you see his dirty, little face? He got it voluntarily.
When we walk over the house, he likes to roll in every dirt spot he can find.
This means that on the way back to the house, he resembles a little beige dog instead of his black and white self.
And when he shakes, he looks like Pigpen from Charlie Brown.
But I don't think that's worth a song.
