Look, the walls are glazed shiny this morning. I guess from condensation.

Actually, that’s something I had my interior decorator do. I specified Gloss rather than Matte.

Nice, very nice. Tasteful. Yes. But couldn’t he have come up with a more interesting color scheme?

Oh, uh, well, I suppose you know, white is very “in” these days — for snowcaves.

Goes with the spartan decor?

Yes, I suppose it does.
