Her: (Comes into the house from the garage) Oh my god! No way. I can't believe you painted this color in our living room! It is WAY too dark.
Me: What are you talking about?! This color is gorgeous!
Her: It looks like a dungeon in here! I refuse to live in a house this color.
Me: You just need a minute to get used to it! You're so accustomed to dull beiges and non-colors that it might take a bit of time to adjust. But once you do you'll love it!
Her: You're crazy. I won't EVER like this color! It's HORRIBLE! I don't know what you were thinking.
Me: Just give it a chance! Look at the way it updates-
Her: I never should have let you go to Home Depot to pick out paint colors! I-
Me: Hey, I'M the artistic one in the family! Don't you trust me?! I mean -
Her: No! This looks hideous!! The color -
Me: Quit interrupting me! Jeez.
Her: The color I chose was SO much better than this one! I LOVED that color and I wanted to see it on the walls when I got home!!
Me: That wasn't even a real color! It was an icky white TRYING to be a color! And failing!
Her: That color was beautiful. Not like this bullshit - It's awful! Just. Awful.
Me: You're out of your fucking mind - it's gorgeous! I hate to say this, but you have no taste.
Her: Me? Look at the color you put on the walls!!
Me: You don't trust my artistic instinct?
Her: Not this time I don't. I think you made a bad choice!
Me: It's gorgeous! Everyone will LOVE it!! Adam said HE liked it.
Her: He doesn't know what he's talking about. I'm calling my friend Jessica.
Me: She'll like it! She has good taste!
Her: Nope. She'll hate it. I promise you she'll hate it. Just wait.
