I'm not cheap, I'm "green"

The conversation between Marc and I this weekend as we painted just about every room in the house to prepare it for sale...

Me: I think making me reuse the same painter's tape in every room secures your spot as the cheapest man on the planet.

Marc: But I'm "reusing" - it's one of the three "R's". I'm just thinking of the environment you know.

Me: If you were thinking of the the environment, you'd be using low VOC paint instead of trying to kill me with these fumes.

Marc: But I'm recycling this half used paint that someone left here. That's even better than buying new paint.

Me: I don't think so. This paint will continue to release noxious fumes into this house for years to come.

Marc: But we won't live here anymore.

Sorry in advance to the future owners of our house. My husband isn't cheap, he's green....?
