Rebel without a clue

“Cheryl, why don’t you take the knobs off before you paint the doors?”
“If you want to paint, then take the knobs off.”


Three hours later,

I find myself finishing up the inside of our pantry door. I’m putting the finishing touches on my masterpiece, a flawless paint job around a doorknob – still installed. It must have taken me fifteen minutes, easy (just for that half inch around the knob).

It really felt like I was proving a point at the time, I just can’t figure out what it was. Somebody find me a point, please?
