You may remember seeing my living room before around here from time to time.
Welcome Back! Today my living room is the scene of a bit of an oddity, the unsittably pillowed chair!
I’m sure many of you reading today have a pillow problem as well. It’s not that I necessarily buy or make too many (OK, Chris may disagree here), it’s just that once I get the right pillow in the right spot, it. is. staying.
That’s gold, people! Such a rare thing to encounter. I feel like my pillows never look quite right. They look wrong, even.
But this thing we have going on here, it doesn’t just look wrong, it is wrong. From a functional perspective.
This is what guests see when they come to my home:
I’ve even tried to perch my butt on the edge, only to give up and just sit on the floor.
And yet, there the pillows stayed.
I didn’t put them there on purpose, things just sort of happened. They were moved there to clear space elsewhere, all at separate times, and serendipity took over.
Am I about to cross serendipity?
So there they are. All three of them.
Maybe I’ll just bring in another chair to go beside it.
And maybe just one little pillow for that one. Or even a throw.
It’s a slippery slope.
