” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog Adventure”
I rushed home with my brand new computer chair
I pushed the box into my civic avoiding the odd looks and a funny stare
A bargain a bargain $49.95 for a faux leather chair -extraordinaire!
I unpacked, it was all in pieces! but on hand I had a bag of peanut reese’s,
I toiled, I sweat, I snapped the parts into place and cajoled the rest,
there it was shining in the glow of my supersaver 25 watt bulb.
My spa in a chair, my place to stare, my faux leather chair -extraordinaire!
I kerplunked down, a twinge went up my back…
Something’s wrong, something’s amiss!
before I knew it I had plopped on the floor with a hiss,
I tried to seat myself again,
it was not too long after I picked myself off the floor,
that’s when I knew what I was headed for,
endless days of fighting with a chair,
I push back, it pushes forward, I push back, it pushes forward …oh my faux leather chair -extraordinaire.
