Is It Really a No if They Don’t Say “No”?

Before you all get to worked up, I am just talking about wallpaper here. Beautiful, realistic, floral wallpaper. With images like the ones below popping up all over the internet, I’ve seriously been considering adding a floral accent wall somewhere in my house. My top two space contenders are the front wall in the master bedroom or the back wall of the dining room, both offer large fairly square canvases unbroken by windows or doors. Of course, being the considerate wife that I am I had to run my idea by Andy and force him to look at all of the pretty, pretty inspiration pictures.

He looked at a page or two and then did the guy thing and made an unintelligible grunting sound. After being together for almost six years, I am pretty sure that was Andy speak for “I really hate this idea, but I don’t want to hurt your feelings or get into a fight about future hypothetical wallpaper; besides, you have your own office why can’t do your crazy woman design voodoo in there?”  But since he didn’t actually say any of those words, could I really be blamed for thinking that he meant, “Wow baby, you are so creative and I love your idea, but as a dude, I have to pretend like I don’t like things like floral wallpaper, but you do that thing you do and our house will look AMAZING.” It could totally go both ways, right?
