I am kinkshaming your weatherproofing supplies

You may remember that I made some pathetic efforts to silicone caulk around the back door recently, and the Junebug was fascinated; therefore, he easily identified what the handyman we saw out the train window this morning was doing.

"LOOKIT!" he announced loudly, to the entire train car. "HE HAS A CAULK GUN! MAMA, LOOKIT ALL THAT PINK CAULK!"

It was indeed, for some reason, possibly only for the amusement of those around small children, bright pink caulk.

Bright colours on caulk, spray foam, etc, make it easier for the building inspector to visually confirm the the stuff has been applied as required. Ditto for a lot of other construction materials -- it's gaudy so you can tell it's there, and easily see gaps, holes, rips, etc.

There are some products - such as spackle - that start out colored, then turn white when dry/cured. For some reason, pink is a popular color for this.

See, this is one reason why being a parent (or, at least, being around children) can be awesome: it gives one occasion--and license--to laugh uproariously at things like that.

"Kinkshaming Your Caulk" would be an AOK band name.
