I'm installing a fifty-pound chandelier in Atherton. To place my ladder, I have to move a massive walnut table.
Mrs. W is watching me closely. "Don't hurt that table," she says. "It's the reason we bought the house."
"It came with the house?" I ask.
"No. I bought the dining room set for our old house, but it didn't fit, so we bought a new house."
Atherton is a different world.
