EMPS #7: Furniture.
Ahhh… is there anything better after a long, difficult day then to come home and sink into a favorite couch or chair? It’s one of the best comforts ever! So, for this week, lets pay tribute to the comfy, well worn, furniture in our lives! Do you have a favorite chair, either indoor or out, that you love to escape to when you want to read a good book? Does your hubby have one of those old tacky… um… well lived in … recliners only a guy could love? I know, you have a nifty orange futon that was well loved. Or how about a bean bag chair left over from the 70′s, or a Barcalounger you may have won on Let’s Make A Deal? Well this is your chance to show it off! Show me your favorite piece of comfy, cozy FURNITURE!
Extra Credit: It would be just nifty, if the furniture in question, has a few dents, bruises, or misplaced stuffing! That would mean it was loved, and has served you well.
There is something about your favorite chair, your favorite spot. It’s like an old friend at the end of a long tiring day. The lighting is perfect. The view of the television or out the window is perfect. Your chair has your indelible impression a.k.a. your butt-print in it. It has your own unique scent, which I hope is pleasing to others. Or perhaps in order for it to be “your spot”, the scent might better serve if it is offensive to some. That way no one will take “your spot”.
My spot is an overstuffed, oversized chair. I can literally curl up in it and nap or stretch out with the matching oversized ottoman and read or work on my laptop or catch up on my dvr’d programming or netflix rentals. Within arms’ reach is one of my bookcases which is stuffed with books. It’s the perfect cozy, comfy, clean, well-lighted place for me.
Or is it?
By popular demand, we have scuba-duck demonstrating that my cozy, comfy, clean, well-lighted place is a perfect for place for others who might dwell here under the Big Top. I’m assuming that this means that my lingering scent is not offensive…at least not anymore.
Scuba-duck isn’t the only one who find “my chair” cozy and comfy, clean and well lit.
Zoë finds it a cozy place for herself. Unfortunately even here, she isn’t safe from the mamarrazi’s camera lens.
Jodie and Daniel both love my chair too. They enjoy it solo but find that it is even better when shared.
Even Hazel finds that it is, indeed, a cozy, comfy place to snooze…
Perhaps they “steal my chair” because they want to be as close to me as possible, because they love me so and because when I am not available, “my chair” is a reasonable mommy/grandmom-substitute.
I think that is a reasonable, acceptable, plausible explanation…in my opinion it is perfectly the only explanation.
Don’t laugh too loudly. You’ll wake the baby!
