Paint or wallpaper?

I have a quick story that still makes me laugh every time I think about it.

Whilst me and my wife were decorating the living room in our old house for the first time, we made sure we had all the best utensils to make the job as easy as possible. We bought some fancy ladders with paint pot holders on the side to help us while painting the ceiling.

Whilst the wife was up the ladders painting the roof she managed to get her foot stuck and kicked out to free it, accidentally kicking the paint pot holder and knocking it off the ladders! This would be funny on its own, but it just so happened that I was next to the ladders sorting out all the wallpaper rolls, most of which I had took the wrappers off and piled up just next to me, which as you can guess was right were the paint pot landed covering most of the wall paper rolls in white emulsion!
