Just in case I forget what chaos accompanied this painting, here’s a photo.

As you can see, I’m washing the Black and Decker PaintStick, which we’ve named the Slave Driver. It’s called the Slave Driver because if you put it down for any extended period of time (more than 15 minutes), paint starts drooling through the roller, and then punishes you by dripping all over the bloody place when you start painting again. Furthermore, when you’ve finished painting for the day, and ready for a nice rest, you have to wash it. Cleanup is nothing nearly as simple as the one-photo process shown on the box. No. You have to spend about 40 minutes plunging water through it to clean out all the paint that’s accumulated inside. Good times!

I’ll be quite happy when all of this is done. Whenever that might be!
