I am all for fixing that huge, gaping hole in the roof. Seriously. It needs to be fixed, we all know it needs to be fixed, I will help you fix it.
I just think that putting out the fire in the living room is just a teeny tiny little bit higher on my priority list, right now.
You'll forgive me for staring in wide-eyed shock and disbelief while I watch you try to patch that hole in the roof in the middle of a burning building.
