Is It Wrong To Love A Chair?!
Yesterday I waited, on pins and needles. They gave me a 4 hour window to their arrival.
Since the downward spiral of last year and our move we didn't have room to pack all of our belongings in the truck...instead we left some behind. We left a lot behind. Our couches and chairs were the first victims. Instead, upon arrival we bought several cheap butterfly chairs. They were wonderful at first as an alternative to sitting on the ground. However, as the days, weeks and months passed so did their health as they all began to break apart. The frames broke, the cushions broke and were resewn several times. However, we made due, not complaining.
Upon arrival of our tax rebate check we began to snoop around the sales until we found just the right furniture. Instead of a couch we opted to buy two recliners, something to bring us comfort...in our old age.
Yesterday we waited, hoping the wait wouldn't last too long. At 10:59am the call came, they were nearby and on their way into the apartment complex. Our beloved new family members have arrived...and we sat. Our backs screamed with gratitude as we set the recliners to their fully stretched out position. No much longer and I was dead asleep...Oh what a glorious nap it was.
Can a person fall in love with a chair?
