It's true. I stole his innocence and I liked it. I paid him for it too.
What the hell am I talking about? I had the chandelier installed in the laundry room last week and was informed by the electrician (with 25 years experience) that this was the first chandelier he's installed in a laundry room. I was SHOCKED. Obviously his customers don't read blogs.
I was feeling pretty cocky. I was the first person in Nerk, Ahia to have a chandelier in their laundry room, na-na-na-boo-boo. I was setting the home decor curve, I was the Alpha, the bar had been set.
Then, he said it. It broke my heart, it crushed my spirit. It pissed me off.
"Well ma'am, I just do what the customer asks for. I don't have to like it or understand it as long as I'm paid for it."
EXCUSE ME? What about this doesn't make sense and are you saying you don't like the idea of a dandy little vintage chandy in a laundry room? Do you realize the deal I got on this baby? How I covered her with a blanket to keep her warm and safe and to hide her from admirers? Do you not see my vision? Doesn't it all make sense?
All I could say was "I saw it online." I might as well said "I carried a watermelon." He didn't get it. At all.
It's ok though.
I get it.
YOU get it.
Bloggers get me.
That's what matters.
