I bought a new chair.
Just like 'the big red chair'.........but bigger.
It’s a sleeper chair (folds out to be a twin bed.)
I’ve been feeling guilty when the boys come home for a visit because only one of them has a bed to sleep in. So I bought the sleeper chair to put in the studio.
The store where I purchased it said they would call the day before to confirm the delivery.
They said they would let us know if it would be delivered in the morning or afternoon.
They said they’d also call half an hour before they arrived to verify.
They never called.
So we went to bed and set our alarm clocks for seven AM.
Time enough to wake up, shower, dress, have coffee.
Because WHO THE HELL DELIVERS FURNITURE BEFORE 8 AM?
At 6:50 AM the doorbell woke me up.
At least I think it was the doorbell…….
I stumbled to the front door and sure enough there stood a man wearing a headlamp strapped to his forehead and smiling!
“GOOD MORNING!” he boomed. “We have your furniture!”
ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?????
It’s 6:50 AM! It’s still dark out! Who starts their deliveries at this ungodly hour????
“Just let me slip into some clothes and turn on the lights” I mumbled.
They were in and out and I was back in bed before the alarm clocks ever made a sound!
I thought maybe I dreamed it except when I finally did get up the chair was there in all its beautiful red glory.
But seriously, 6:50 AM?????
