That one time I tried to buy cum paper at Home Depot

Well as it turns out there have been many aspects of this remodel that have been right up my alley. Then there have been things that, well it turns out, I’m not so good at. One of those being trips to Home Depot for random needed items to complete work happening at the house. Don’t get me wrong, on a good day when I know what I need and what I’m looking for Home Depot is a breeze. I even find myself getting lost down aisles day dreaming of things I could DIY, if I was good at the DIY stuff.

But on this particular day I was sent to Home Depot with orders (love you babe!) to buy items that would be texted to me by the time I arrived there. Feeling pretty confident in my ability to sweet talk some unsuspecting person in an orange apron, I thought to myself, no problem, how hard can this be? No pun intended.

Keep in mind that I originally went to purchase finishing nails – something like 4,000 of them, but like any trip to Home Depot, one thing turns into many things, such as electrical wire a pancake and cum errr, some paper. And well, this is a little how the text message conversation went.


So if you’re reading this and you’ll be doing any kind of work on your home and need to protect your floors, there is no such thing as cum paper, but they do sell *some paper or rather red and brown paper in different thicknesses depending on what you need at your local Home Depot.

Now if you’ll excuse me, there’s a glass of wine with my name on it calling.
