To the tune of “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie”:
If you give a house new carpet, it will insist on a new garage door as well (quite vehemently, in fact, by ripping its own garage door off the frame).
If you give a house a new garage door, your car inside the garage will get jealous and demand a new engine by blowing up on the freeway.
If your car engine blows up, the pipes in your house will sympathize and do the same, demanding a full re-pipe.
Oh yes, and I have elective eye surgery (PRK) scheduled for Thursday afternoon. Good times, indeed! :)
