Bulging Latex

In previewing a tenant-occupied home prior to taking a listing, I entered one of the bedrooms and noticed something that was the shape of a half-basketball protruding from the ceiling above the bed. Upon closer examination, I discovered an unreported water leak from the upstairs bathroom had pooled in the latex paint of the ceiling until it had gotten heavy enough to bulge.

The college-student tenant had noticed it for weeks, but didn’t think sleeping under several gallons of water secured only by a thin coat of latex paint was cause for worry.

It takes a relatively decent IQ to get into Colorado College, but not necessarily a lot of common sense.
