We have a very large window in our family room that is west facing. The sun beats through this window and heats up the room to an uncomfortable degree. We have tried several different things in order to keep the sun out, but the problem comes from the arch at the top of the window that nothing is able to cover. For the past 4yrs we have used these awful looking paper blinds that are shaped in a fan to cover this window but it has done little good and like I said is very unattractive. So I found these solar screens that a guy makes to custom fits your window and are hung from the outside. They look good and really do block the sun from heating up your room. He came to install them today. He was very polite and removed his shoes to come inside so I could write out his check. Upon leaving, low and behold one of his shoes had mysteriously disappeared. I knew exactly what happended. Our adorable puppy, that the man thought was so cute, had drugged it under the couch to have a good chew. Without think, I told the man it was probably under the couch. And of course it was, so to my horror he bent down to retrieve his shoe and to his astonishment he found his chewed up shoe and, pause, a pair of my dirty underwear that Lucky had drug under the couch to also chew on. AHHHHH. The poor man quickly composed himself and refused the extra money to pay for his shoes and left quickly.
Why oh why do dogs like underwear so much, especially the already worn kind that should be put in the hamper upon removal and not left lying around for guest to see. I guess the only good thing is that I will probably never see this man, and if for some reason I do, at least he will know I pay good money at Victoria's Secret for the pretties in my drawer.
