Curtain Call

I wrote about my wife's "secret" installation ofcurtain rods in our bedroom a while back. She installed some new curtain rods and didn't tell me. I didn't even notice they were there until one day I went to bed and she'd put up the curtains. The curtain rods were in our bedroom for a week before she hung the curtains and I didn't even notice- I am still catching major grief for that little faux pas!

Our new curtain rods look like this one:The curtain rods in the living room look like this one: I like them-not too fancy so I'd hardly notice them (I didn't after all).

I'll have to admit, I'm not big on curtains, I'd prefer simple blinds with no window treatment at all- a clean uncluttered look. My wife has different tastes and ideas however and, like most men, I'm forced willing to compromise on such issues. Having curtains in the boudoir gives her an enhanced sense of "security" when we're using it for things other than sleeping, if you know what I mean.

The thing that kills me most about accessorizing the home is the "decision process." This usually involves traipsing around from store to store looking at and offering opinions on things that really don't matter too much to me. I'd much rather she pick curtain rods and other similar items out on her own, even if I don't notice them for a week and catch a load of crap for it. After all, even if I DO go from store to store with her, she'll ultimately pick out what she wants and I, smart guy that I am, will capitulate to her wishes and compliment her on her wonderful taste and flair.

The next time she has a whim and wants to get new curtain rods, I'm sending her to Wrought Iron Haven to do her shopping. It's an online store for all sorts of home decorating accessories, including curtain rods. This works out great for me. She can browse around and find the things she likes and I can compliment her on her wonderful taste and flair without leaving the house! Maybe then we can have a little more time to draw the curtains in the boudoir, if you know what I mean.

I can even show her a secret on the website that will save us some money. She's as much of a cheap bastard as me, bless her heart. If you want to get a special discount on curtain rods (or anything else they sell), all you have to do is go to the homepage halfway down and click on the comma in the line that reads “Our Store now has over 1,300 home & garden items for you to choose from!” So we save money AND time. I like that.

Let's review: I am oblivious. My wife delights in goofing on me. She has flair and style. I could care less. I hate shopping. We're both cheap bastards. We can save money on home decorating accessories at Wrought Iron Haven. I'd rather retire to the boudoir, if you know what I mean, than agonize over curtain rods.

Got it?
