|The best part was your knees came up to your chin when you sat on it.|
|The flowery couch at the bottom of the photo is the awful one that was here already.|
Weeks and months passed, and we saw no evidence of these alleged "on-their-way" couches, but I didn't mind one bit. Although I avoided sitting on that ugly, uncomfortable floral couch at all costs, I grew to love the retro vibe in our living room. It was quirky. It was fun. It was ours.
Well, to my dismay, today everything changed. I walked through the front door after school, and saw this:
The alleged couches had finally arrived... 6 months later. New leather (actually, probably pleather) couches. Based on my first impressions of that uncomfortable, ugly couch that I avoided at all costs, you'd think I would have just been happy to see it go. But now, I'm surprised by how much I miss it. These new couches are just so blah. And worst of all, they're not any more comfortable than the old one was. They're deceptive, sneaky little things, these couches. They look like they kind you could sink into with a sigh, but no. Plop down on one of these suckers and you'll get the wind knocked out of you. It's like pleather-covered cement.
Plus, they're just really harshing my retro-house mellow.
Sigh. The end.
