Why I'm Not the Host of "This Old House"

Because I'm here all day while construction is taking place in our new addition, my husband erroneously believes that I can accurately report on each day's progress.

Tom: So, did they do anything today or did they just leave the concrete to cure?

Me: Head Foundation Guy came and inexplicably cut out brand-new basement floor into four big pieces with a very loud machine.

Tom: Oh, yeah. I think since concrete has a tendency to crack no matter what, they make cuts to control where it will crack.

Me: ...so you're telling me that our basement floor just had an episiotomy?

Tom: Essentially.

That does sound about right. I wouldn't have thought of it so quickly!

Imagine me rolling on the floor laughing.
