Hump days can be such a bitch

This morning started out with quite the bang. There I was, sitting by my window in the Vampire Den(tm), having my morning cigarette and orange juice - SO not awake... when all of a sudden, I found myself on the floor.

Let's be more specific. I was still sitting in my chair, cigarette in my mouth, yet I was on the floor.

It seems that the chair legs on the chair that I was still sitting in all spontaneously decided to go wander for a bit. But, the chair legs brothers 4 had for the first time in their lives completely disagreed with one another, and each wanted to travel in a different direction.

So they did. All at once.

Thus, I was left blinking, wondering how in the world the chair seat and I were on the floor.

Is it just me, or aren't Wednesday's the toughest/weirdest day of the week?

Time to go on a diet? ;)

But seriously, thats what you get for shopping Ikea. Their furniture is built with the bare minimal number of screws to maintain structural integrity. Everyone has suffered an "Ikea-lanche" at some point or another.

Nope nope... this wasn't Ikea furniture, so you can just take your anti-Swedish butt back to where you came from. ;-)

This was a chair that came with the apartment that has its origins from the 40's.

This reminds me of when my mother was visiting us for some family meal or another, and sitting in one of my "dining room" chairs. She seemed to be slowwwwwwly sinking as one of the legs gave out.

I think chairs in general are mostly suckfully made these days. At least 3 of 4 have had to be repaired at least once.

Sounds like an excuse to go shopping. :)

Or sit lotus style early in the am, with your juice and cigarrette.

Just get your 4 point manacles out of the box, and shackle those legs together... that'll hold-em. (we had the bondage chair for many moons, held together by the power of rope)

Haunted?
What happened to the previous tenant? All four at once could be demonic possession time...

Teeheehee!
Sorry to laugh at your pain but you paint such a vivid cartoon. Sounds like the fae folk are having some fun at your expense. Oh yes, there are fairies in the city.

Y'know that fitness program you've been secretly thinking about starting but have been stubbornly procrastinating? Yeah, well, it's time. When the Universe begins speaking to you that loudly, you should listen! ;-D I'd give my eye teeth to have been there with you at that moment!

Perhaps the chair had fantasies of being an octopus and was merely expressing its own desire for freedom?

What an image my dear. I forget how delighfully funny you can be sometimes. Thanks for the reminder.
