Thomas Moore (Irish Poet, 1779-1852)
TIME: 9:50 PM
PLACE: The Living room
SUBJECT: New Leather Couch
After 12+ years, our old couch had done its time and was due to be retired. It had been through 4 cats, 3 kids and 1 dog. It had been jumped on, eaten on, thrown-up on, and urinated on. (I will not go into other activities that have been performed on said couch. This is a family-friendly blog.) When I sat on either corner of it, my derriere would sink to the ground. The upholstery covering the cushions was becoming threadbare. It also retained a certain smell that even an entire bottle of Febreze could not rectify. It was time for it to go. Last Sunday, I looked at couches and I ended up choosing this leather one. It was delivered this afternoon. The dog is being trained to stay off of it – she has her own upholstered chair to sit on – I wish I could do the same with the kids!
