Peep Show

As we continue on our "staging" journey I begin to welcome strange men into my house.  The other day it was "painters".  Very nice Hispanic gentlemen. They were going to be outside all day so I would remain comfortably in my house.

I opened the blinds and curtains of my upstairs master bedroom to let the sunshine in as I do every morning.  I locked to bedroom door to avoid any traumatic encounters with my kids and jumped in the shower.  Ahhh.  Every time I shower I think I should do this more often.  I toweled off and walked into my  master bedroom wearing nothing but what God gave me.


And right outside my bedroom window was Mr. Painter Man.

I squealed (maybe added a swear word or two) and ran into my closet. Holy Crap, I just flashed the poor guy.  I don't think he saw me and was praying for a benefit of the solar shades that the manufacturer never intended.

I got dressed and very casually walked to the window and closed the blinds and curtains.

I texted my husband to tell him about the peep show.  And my sweet husband, who is forever defending my honor, texted this back:

"Make sure he subtracts that value from the total bill."

Or, as I pointed out, they could end up charging us hazard pay.

LOLOL! Oh wow! Maybe you're safe unless your squealing grabbed his attention. I nearly flashed my cousin the other day. I was putting on a bra as he drove up. You're a wild woman flashing strangers, me, I like to keep it in the family. :)

I think I totally love your hubby!!!! He's funny.

Sorry about your scare. I bet those guys see more than they ever bargain for.

You might start to get a lot of door to door salespeople wanting to do stuff for ya. LUCKY!

If you got it, flaunt it. That is so something my husband would say too. And what you said, is what I would say...Haha! Too funny! Bet you will be glad when all this done!

Lisa said...

Man, your husband is a CHARMER! Hey, by the way, there is this weird thing on e-bay...a pair of women's under britches that is said to have been rummaged and snagged by someone wandering through a house for sale. Wondered if you knew anything about that...

Much More Than Mommy said...

ROFL!!! You and your husband are both pretty clever! Maybe the painter blogged about it... :-D

Saimi said...

Ha! That was our world a year ago. We had so much remodling going on I never knew who I was going to encounter. It was grand central station around here.

Better keep a towel handy! :)

Hahahaha... that is SO FUNNY. And I can totally see myself doing the same thing. Accidentally, of course.

"I flashed the poor guy".

I don't think he was thinking of himself as "poor" at the time.

2busy said...

Haha, sounds like something MY husband would say. Sure they aren't related?

Audrey said...

That is too funny. I'm sure he enjoyed the peek. You're husband's response was fabulous, by the way!

I do NOT say LOL casually... ever... so you will understand that this is special when I admit that I was Laughing Out Loud!

Lourie said...

Oh dear me! Hahaha. I think I would have never come out of my room. I love what your hubbie said tho.

Kami said...

Oh my, haha! A free peep show, wow and your husband is quite the charmer.

And I'm sure the painter wasn't feeling like the 'poor' guy that you say he was, lol. Funny funny post!

Since we live on the beach, our bedroom faces a beach that is almost always empty. I have a horrible habit of not shutting the blinds and know that someday I'll be giving the same peep show.

The same thing happened to me when I was in college. Luckily he was looking the other way. But I was still mortified!

reasonably chubby said...

Haha! I'm sure you gave him the thrill of a lifetime if he was lucky enough to be lookin'. :) Can't wait to see the final 'staged' result.

Krista said...

Funny, funny stuff! Did they envy your plumbers' crack? That is a hoot! The picture is great!

blueviolet said...

Eeeks! I really hope he didn't see you! Just think what might have happened had he been on a ladder?

Nikki said...

that picture would scare me at first (well the picture did anyway!) lol thats funny that your husband said that! stopping by and following from Lourie's blog. nice to meet you!

Stephanie Bishop said...

I sure hope they don't charge you "hazard" pay for the Peep Show! They should PAY you for the entertainment!

Are you moving?

Teachinfourth said...

I shouldn't. But I laughed at reading this.
