1. What do you consider a bad boy?

2. Do you change your bedding for the different seasons?

3. Do you/have you ever smoked cigarettes?

I'd go up to them and ask if I could help them find something or something.  Then, if they actually grew up in the house, I might ask them if they'd like to come in and look around.  I know this because I have actually done it.  The people that built our home had four kids who grew up in it, and a couple of years ago one of the kids brought his wife by and they were out in front of the house talking and pointing and I thought maybe they were lost.  He came in and showed us where he and his sisters each had their bedrooms, and found a place in the basement closet where he's scratched his initials into the wood, and then laughed because the childproof locks his parents put up to keep him from getting outside were still on some of the windows.

Snaps on the towels.  I've resorted to that.

1. What do you consider a bad boy? Hmm, you mean like when my son misbehaves?  ;) Or if you mean telling inappropriate jokes and bucking authority (in a legal and generally exasperatingly amusing way), my DH?

2. Do you change your bedding for the different seasons? I switch between normal and flannel sheets.

3. Do you/have you ever smoked cigarettes? Yes, I did.

My decorative towel has a crocheted border topper with a bottom to fasten around the handle.

But I just looked like it and it has hung so long, going on 7 years that it is just hanging on by a couple of threads.

Your reaction sounds normal--this lady wasn't!  LOL  Even after my sil leaned out the window to say her uncle aunt had lived there blah blah blah, owner-lady just stood there glaring at us, with her arms crossed like she was making a stand.

My mom buys kitchen handtowels, which do not have frayed edges, for drying hands.  And kitchen dishtowels, which do have frayed edges, for drying dishes.  At least I think that's the difference . . .

I don't have Samsung appliances, but between two kids and a dog and a husband, mine won't stay there either.  I hang mine on the cabinet knobs.

My husband likes to tuck me in our bed each night. I love to be tucked by him. I love it so much that I would be ecstatic to have him tuck me over and over, tuck me all night long. Sometimes if we find ourselves awake in the middle of the night, he'll retuck me until I'm completely satisfied. He is an AMAZING mothertucker.

No, really.

I don't even make our bed. Every night, I climb in and dh makes the bed around me. He has this special way of stacking the blankets so that when we each roll over, we don't take the entire pile of blankets with us. He stacks them in a way so that we start our evening all cuddled up under the same blanket, but each wake up with our favorites. His blanket is very thick and too hot for me, my preferred blanket is thinner.

We're both three, because not only do we keep it cold in the bedroom, we have fans stragetically placed to maintain the cold so that we stay bundled up in our perfectly engineered tucked bed.

FYI: "mother tucker" without the space trips the profanity filter on iVillage.

Ooh, there's an idea.  And I just bought a big supply of snap tape because it was on sale.  i also liked Little_Miss_Cantbewrong's idea for one of those over-the-cupboard-door brackets.  I actually had a couple of those at the condo but didn't like them there so I got rid of them.
