I painted Sunday, I painted yesterday and I’m painting again today. I just finished painting every second step leading to the basement (so I can still get out of the basement after I write this). I have black enamel all over my hands, my right elbow and bicep (how did this happen???) and under my nails. I think I just ate some paint with my lunch – not the low VOC kind, the good old fashioned high-toxicity kind – but at least nobody will be able to deny I was doing something today.
