whosoever lathers sticky tile with mastic and places it upon perfectly good 20's and 30's honeycomb ceramic tile SHALL BE CURSED
by me until I finish the job of prying about 75 sw feet of it up, razor blade by razor blade (broke two scrapers and went through about six blades today -- am about 40% through prying, then there's removing the goo, and after that, digging out the grout and re-grouting).
