Embarrassing Wins a Contest!
Here's my office chair. Embarrassing, isn't it?
It deserves a spot in the next duct tape book or calendar, don't you think?
But it's the most comfortable chair in the house, and isn't that fortunate, given all the time I spend here.
This old chair, inexpensive, from an office supply store, beats all the recliners and glide rockers, old and new, that we own, and all the specially padded dining room chairs. Its only problem is that it's beat up and was getting embarrassing.
Like Frasier's dad's recliner, if you remember that television show.
A friend came to my rescue and made a beautiful quilt for the back of my chair—that's the New York skyline of course.
Whew. Now when visitors stop in to check email, I don't have to go into a long story about having back problems that only this chair can accommodate.
Do you have something in your office or elsewhere in your home that's less than Home Beautiful quality? Do you hide its flaws? Tell us a story and win a chance for a Halloween treat!
