While a friend’s husband was off at work last summer, she decided to paint a
couple of rooms in the house. As he left, she got down to the task at hand.

Her husband arrived home at 5:30 and smelled the distinctive odor of fresh
paint. He walked into the living room and found his wife lying on the floor
in a pool of sweat. He noticed she was wearing a ski jacket and a fur coat
at the same time.

He quickly rushed to her and asked if she was OK. She replied yes. He had to
ask what she was doing. She replied she wanted to surprise him by painting
the rooms.

Then he just had to wonder why she had a ski jacket over her fur coat. She
replied that she wanted a paint job that would last, so read the directions
on the paint can and they said, “For best results, put on two coats.”
