My wife Lisa loves to watch HGTV on Saturday mornings. However, I have discovered that whenever it’s on, I am in danger of breaking several of the Ten Commandments, like:

No. 3- You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, because I get angry when people complain about how terrible their already-beautiful home is, and I want to cuss.

No. 6- You shall not murder, because I want to kill the home-improvement gurus for spending way too much time and money on a stupid side project that is pretty much useless.

No. 9- You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor, because I want to call people bad names for never choosing the new home instead of their remodeled current home…every single time.

And No. 10- You shall not covet your neighbor’s house…’cause it’s always better than my own…even when they’re purposely showing a bad one to contrast the makeover or the alternative house.

These are the musings of a frustrated armchair carpenter.

simul iustus et peccator,

Eric Adams.
