As in, ever so small an amount. A wee bit. A mite.
Or, well, maybe a tiny, teensy, eensy bit more than a wee bit.
As evidenced by the following. My sort of “Top 10 reasons why the tree MAY be too big.”
And finally, the number one reason why the tree you cut down in the forest might be a wee bit too big for your house:
The star won’t fit between the “top” of the tree and the ceiling. And yes, one could simply cut off the top of the tree, but as seen in the photo above, the dear daughter’s tree is the top of this tree. And I was not going to take it down and do it again. Well, let me rephrase that: the dear husband was not going to be talked into taking the tree out of the stand and taking more off the top.
So we have a crooked star, but a star nonetheless.
And there you have it. Simple ways to determine if the tree you cut down in the forest is too big for the house.
Yes, yes, I know. I could simply take a tape measure along. And since we’ve been doing this for several years now, and the height of the ceiling has not changed, one would think I might get wiser about it. One would think.
Still looks good though if I do say so myself.
