So, I'm just finishing the painting of the hallway closet (except for touchups) when Steve comes by and says, "So basically, after all that, you're back to the color you started with, except in a semi-gloss."
Me: "Um, no. It was white, and now it's an off-white. Kind of a tan, the Kid says. I don't know, it's in that color family I can't always tell the difference between."
Steve: "So, basically white that's not white."
