Margie: Edna, would you look at our sofa? Our party guests must have dropped their food and drink all over it. We can clean all that but how did all these little holes get in there?
We can't afford a new couch. What can we do, Edna?
Edna: Trust you to go all fluttery over a little bit of damage, Margie. You know as good as I do that all a good solid piece of furniture needs to perk it up is to re-upholster it. I bet if we put our minds to it, we'll be able to find some nifty fabric choices online.
Margie: What a good idea, Edna. Let's get something bright and cheerful. The room could stand some pep. Let's start looking.
Edna: I think we should go with something tasteful and timeless. I feel sure that you'll agree, since you claim to be such a lady and all.
Margie: Here it is, Edna. I want this for the sofa, my bedroom, and my bathroom. What do you think ?
Edna: Margie, that's so typical of you; you won't rest until you've hussied up the whole house, will you? You can do what you want for your own bedroom, but it's just not decent having half-nekkid men on the sofa fabric.
Okay...if I agree to pinup fabric for the sofa, then you're going to have to pay for it out of your own money. I won't contribute to the delinquency of our sitting room.
Margie: I'll gladly pay for you to shush.
Let's see... I need enough for a bedspread and a shower curtain. I'm going shopping, Edna.
Edna: You'd best be shopping with your own money, you freeloader! You hear me?
