It had been an almost two month wait.
Well, two months and the couple of years it took to convince my husband that the wooden slate that kept the couch sofa bed cushions from sinking wasn’t going to cut it anymore.
But then came the imminent advent of Netflix and most importantly, the final FINAL (because one final isn’t dramatic enough) of Mad Men.
And there was no frickin’ way I was going to be a potato on a slouch couch.
Me and Don Draper had to get reacquainted in comfort. Know what I’m sayin’?
After much deliberation and heated discussions in various furniture retailers, we decided on the luxurious Ashton two and three seater.
Fabric Type? Keylargo, please.
Colour? Pebble, please.
Dimensions? Massive, ‘mmmkay?
In fact, so mofo massive that we should’ve relied on our instincts rather than believe the sales hungry furniture people who convinced us that we wouldn’t have ANY problems fitting through that tight space between the front and lounge room door.
Those poor delivery guys, they literally tried to move walls to keep this customer happy.
“Bro, we’re back to where we started, bro”
In the meantime, I was having a mental game of “Bro Bingo” in my head.
Then, the defining moment when my bros tried to squeeze the giant oblong through the rectangular door.
Pushing, pulling, twisting, nudging.
Leading to the dreaded words:
“Sorry. You’re going to have to call the furniture shop”
So, now in my garage sits a perfectly beautiful comfortable three seater lounge, waiting for the upholsterer to drop by sometime today to unscrew one of the arms, make another (hopefully successful) attempt to fit it through that frickin’ door, then reattach the arm again.
Wish he could do the same thing with my sanity.
Anyway, we make the most of the positives, right? At least there’s one couch for me to slouch on, right?
Thank goodness, I decided to keep the mattress of our old sofa bed before sending it to furniture heaven.
