The Fear is Real

Well, I did it. After our couch broke, we purchased a new one online. It was being delivered in boxes.

It was only after the button was pressed did I think of it. You know what it was. The fear that the sofa would arrive in boxes. Lots and lots of boxes.

And I would be given an Alan wrench and a set of pictograms that looked like someone dancing the macarana.

Thankfully it arrived in two boxes. One contained the cushions and the other had 7 wooden pieces and associated hardware.

I had it assembled within fifteen minutes.


Then I added the cushions. And the cat leapt from the fish tank onto the back and the cushions toppled over. The cat landed on her feet on the floor and meowed at me for the next 20 minutes. She was not amused. I laughed.


It is an indoor/outdoor couch. And while we expect the cushions to be trashed by next year, we think the teak frame will last quite a while.

Until next time.
