Raquel:  You’re not going to believe what my client wants for the finishes in their new house.

Chris:  You’re the interior decorator to the rich and famous, so nothing would surprise me.

Raquel:  My client wants only precious metals. He wants his bathroom fixtures to be made of platinum and gold.

Chris:  You’re kidding! Stainless steel, bronze, or nickel ones aren’t good enough for him?

Raquel:  Not even close. I suggested some aluminum light fixtures for the living room and he told me he wanted solid silver.

Chris:  But for the kitchen, there’s got to be more run-of-the-mill metals, like tin or copper, right?

Raquel:  He hasn’t asked me to stock the kitchen yet, but if he does, I wouldn’t be surprised if he asked for titanium forks!

Chris:  Yours is a strange job, catering to the wishes of the rich.

Raquel:  That’s true, but it’s taught me a lot.

Chris:  What?

Raquel:  To truly appreciate the ordinary!
