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.
Raquel: To truly appreciate the ordinary!
