Taller Children - Elizabeth and The Catapult

The thing about recessions is that when everyone is feeling the sting, occasionally something which you never thought you could afford pops up on craigslist for an unbeatable price.

You toy with the idea.
You ask your friends what you should do.
You dip into your savings.
You drive to Baltimore.
You fall in love with it from first sight.
You drive home with a smile plastered on your face.
You realize you can't get it out of your car, because it's indeed stuck.
You drive around with it stuck in the backseat of your car for a day until your best friend comes over and helps you angle it out.

It sits in your living room where you look up and smile every time you see it. Your Dad sits in it comfortably (which is a big deal because he is six feet four inches). While rocking pensively he tells you it may be the best chair you've ever bought.


(Chair: The Bertoia Diamond chair by Knoll . . . the large version retails new for $1918, if you think I paid anywhere near that amount for it, you are reading the wrong blog :)
