If you're ever planning to re-paint the kitchen cabinets and the bathroom doorframes and windowframes in your apartment, you should be careful what colors of paint you buy. You might look at the colors on the little paper cards and think that you've found the perfect blue for the kitchen cabinets and the perfect heather grey-blue for the bathroom trim - which you might think matches your bathroom towels perfectly. But then you might be told by a pushy salesperson at Home Depot that you ought to know that you will need primer for this specific paint job. You might be insecure about your home-improvement knowledge and abilities and listen to the salesperson. You might buy a $26 can of primer you might later realize you don't need. You might get home and sand and paint one set of cabinets, only to realize that the blue you chose isn't what it looked like in the store at all. It's all wrong for a kitchen. It might be so dark the only place it belongs is in a funeral parlor. You might think you'll feel better if you paint the bathroom trim, because surely that color will be perfect. But you might find that what looked like a lovely grey-blue in the store looks like a purple-ish blueberry under your bathroom lights. You might wish you could start all over again with better colors, but you might have no money. You might wish your husband had selected the paint instead of you, but your husband might be too busy. You might get really depressed, because maybe your in-laws are coming to visit in a few days and they might realize that their dear eldest son has married a girl with no taste in interior decorating whatsoever, and furthermore, that son and daughter-in-law reside together in a wretched shack.
Hypothetically, I mean.
