Very cutsie. Didn't mind reading it. The dialogue is very believable. I'd love to read something you wrote that had a little more interesting subject matter.
Oh, the joy of house hunting. You've described it well. It's almost as much fun as trying to sell one.

LOL! I enjoyed the husbands reactions. Our house has a few "interestingly" colored rooms (from previous owners:) ) Fun story!

Great work and dialogue dub! My favorite lines:

“Last I checked they don’t sell bathtubs at Pro Bass Store.”

“Wanna bet?”

Verily, a fun romp through a sometimes painful and wearying process. Nicely done!
I enjoyed your story. Sure did sound like you were the model for the husband.

i had to chuckle over and over as i read this beautiful piece. as a former builder, it reminded me of how many times i ripped out pink and purple tiled bathrooms. and the market was always changing. great writing and thanks for the memories.

I guess they forgot to put "no pink bathrooms" on their must-have list. :) I had a feeling it was going to end this way. Good story, lots of subtle details make it visual.

I have a pink bathroom, it must have been a '50's thing. I have tried everything to downplay the pink. Anyway the story was very true to life with the banter between the couple. I've noticed that a few of your recent entries have been similiar with the interaction between couples. I guess that can be a wealth of creative fodder for stories.
