Green Side Up!
Entered on: 08/19/1998
A woman wanted to get the inside of her
house painted. She called a contractor in
to help her. As they went around the
house, she specified the color for each
room. She said, "Now in the living room,
I'd like to have a neutral beige, very
soft and warm."
The contractor nodded, pulled out his note
pad, and wrote on it. Then he went to the
window, leaned out, and yelled, "Green
side up!" The woman found this strange,
but didn't say anything.
Next, they went into the dining room. She
said, "In the dining room, I'd like a light
white, not stark, but very bright and airy."
The contractor nodded, pulled out his pad,
and wrote on it. Then he went to the
window, leaned out, and yelled,
"Green side up!"
The woman was perplexed, but still she
In the bedroom she said, "In here, I'd like
blue. Restful, peaceful, cool blue." The
contractor nodded, wrote on his pad, and
once more yelled out the window, "Green
side up!" This was too much for the
woman, so she asked, "Every time I tell
you a color, you write it down, but then
you yell out the window 'Green Side Up.'
What on earth does that mean?"
The contractor shook his head and
replied, "I have four blondes laying sod
across the street."
