Last week I prepared my house to be painted. One of the tasks was to remove the street numbers from the house, allowing for both home and numbers to be easily painted.
The street numbers are above the garage door and easily viewable from the street. They weren’t always there, however. Initially they were above the front door, but as the trees in the yard grew, the numbers became increasingly obscured. So one day I moved them from front door to garage door.
When my daughter came home, she inquired, “Didn’t the numbers used to be over the front door?”
When my son came home, he plainly asked, “When do you move the numbers?”
My bride made no such query and when the topic arose, she seriously asked, “We have numbers on our house?”
