My Dad As A Verb

Sunday Mornin' Coming Down - A post about my Dad each Sunday, named after a song that he loved.

Email discussion with my uncle about the potential cost of various house renovations.

Si: Are the $ figures backed up with research, etc or is it guess work? ie. Are you doing a George? 
Me: What is "doing a George"? 
Si: "Doing a George": deciding on a budget figure you'd be happy with without doing a ton of research.

This exchange totally made me laugh; I didn't know he did that but I am not surprised. I don't have that issue because I like to research so spend lots of time looking things up to get an idea of the risks, costs, process, etc.
