That Sinking Feeling
In addition to getting some new sheetrock on our walls, which, as you see, resemble papier mache, I was thinking of replacing those acoustic ceiling tiles with sheetrock as well. Some previous tenant put them up, and I always thought they looked as if they should be in a rumpus room on Staten Island.
But then, a funny thing happened to comic Jen Dziura last week when she was running out the door to a gig, and suddenly, sheetrock on my ceiling may be a bad idea.
So maybe I'll keep the current ceiling, since it only sustains a net damage of one or two tiles every time my neighbors' plumbing breaks. Or I'll stick with tiles, but I'll restore the genuine original antique beauty of my landmarked tenement by using these phony tin tiles.
