Ode To My New Chair

Well, not an ode, exactly, but I am pretty excited about my new desk chair.  My parents got me my first desk chair when I was in college.  It served me well for a decade or so, but I had to put it out to pasture a year and a half ago.  (Here “put it out to pasture” means “leave it in my office as a horizontal space on which to put paper I want to recycle.”)  When my old-old desk chair stopped working, I turned to the only available chairs I had: my dining room chairs.  It was only supposed to be temporary, but I used a dining room chair as my desk chair for a year and a half.

Looks comfy, right?  It’s really not so bad for short periods of time.  But sitting for hours straight (like for online classes or when writing 15-page papers in two days) was murder.  Now that my new chair is here, it can join its fellows in my dining room.

So much nicer.  It was custom-built to my specifications (!) and has all the latest bells and whistles.  (Who knew desk chairs had bells and whistles?)  I guess this officially marks the end of Christmas, as this was a Christmas present from my parents.  Thanks Mom and Dad!

Speaking of my dad, it’s his birthday today.  Happy Birthday, Dad!

Until tomorrow.
