Everyone makes mistakes, even me, like when I painted my fence purple this weekend. It seemed like a good idea at the time—I think I was picturing a garden in the Mediterranean, thick with vines and the smell of jasmine, the fence and house and all the surrounding homes each painted a different hue of jewel-like brilliance. But this is my back yard, and the purple looked pale and pasty, the color of a public bathroom or something.

How long will the repaint take, and what is the appropriate color? Best not to think about it right now.
