Subsequent to my investing in a new property I discovered that under some old carpet in the bathroom were black and white chequered vinyl tiles. I though I might spruce them up, and since Ol'Joe (a neighbourhood drunk) inaccurately identified them as Trialputite Igneous Tetupathesiastona Singulineum vinyl, I painted them.
Big mistake! Everytime I had a shower and the floor got wet, the surface of the floor would become like an ice rink. By the end of month two I had a fractured skull, bruising on my ass and a pending law suit from a woman named Barbi who I'd met in a diner in Pittsburgh.
You see, my vinyl floor was Semi-Lacquered Industrially Covered Konan tiling. And this is notoriously slippery.
