Chili Mac

Recently, I had some unexpected time off from work so I decided to paint my our bedroom. Since I love the color blue, it was agreed the room would be blue. It didn't matter two other rooms in our house are blue too. Of course, the rooms are all different shades of blue. My husband didn't argue about the color our room that I picked. While we were painting, I accidentally touched the wet wall with my hair. I am talented like that. I turned to my husband and asked him if I actually had paint in my hair. He told me yes so I told him that he could call me Marge Simpson from now on. Don't worry I wasn't painting in the kind of dress she wears. If I had, I would have had paint on the dress too!
