22 Real Life Hanging wallpaper: I- has the wallpaper in the closet with the paste. It’s on a list of things to do. They never get around to it.D-says “Come over Saturday and help me wallpaper. And bring the paste.” He starts in the middle of the living room. The patterns don’t match, He says, “so what, that’s what drapes and pictures are for.”
23 Real Life Ask for something on their desk: S-says, “It’s the third thing down in that pile.” The desk may be a little messy, but the piles are ordered and they know exactly where everything is.C- has everything filed in alphabetical sequence and by color coded files.
