[Dad is home visiting for a week with the purpose of taking care of handyman stuff around the house. He removed, cleaned, and replaced the air filters; replaced a bulb in one of the high-up motion detector lights outside; cleaned the birds’ nests out of the gutters and put down bird spikes; then could not resist cleaning out all the leaves that had accumulated in the gutters and basically turned into mulch, despite CC saying she could hire someone to do that.]
CC: Dad, you did so much labor today. Thank you!
Dad: Well, it’s my house. [Cracks up.]
CC: What’s so funny?
Dad, still laughing: It’s my house, so I have to do the work, but if this were your house I would have charged you a lot of money.
