Sierra Lodge Stories

Setting: Sister J and her friends came to Sierra Lodge to volunteer their work, and the foreman gave them the job of staining the deck.

Foreman: Okay, get the bucket, and just brush the stain on the underside of the deck. Do NOT stain the other parts. Just the underside, where people can't see it. The other visible parts have to be stained with a different color.

J: Okay.

[30 minutes later]

J: Ummm... I'm sorry. But I accidentally stained the outside. Can we undo the stain or cover it up with the right color stain?

Foreman: (sigh) No, you can't undo stains, and we can't cover it.

J: Sorry.

Foreman: Well, that's okay. There's another deck around the corner. Do the same thing. Just stain the underside. And do NOT stain the visible parts.

J: Got it!

Foreman: You sure?

J: (laughing) Don't worry!!

[30 minutes later]

J: Ummm... we did it again.
