on thursday night, we rode the train home from the farmer's market. while walking home from the train station, we saw a blue armchair on the side of the road -- it was in perfect condition and looked good. so good, in fact, that i couldn't decide if it had been left there as a giveaway or if someone was just in the process of moving it.
we went home and i forgot about the chair. later that night, right in the middle of 30 rock, b said "hey! i wonder if that chair is still there!" it had been about three hours since we'd seen it, so i figured if it was still there it was now free game. so we hopped in the car.
and there it was! we were excited. i have no shame when it comes to picking up furniture -- our coffee table, in fact, was rescued from someone's front lawn on trash night a month before we got married. it took a while to figure out how to get it in the car [i ended up riding home in the trunk -- a first for me -- holding onto the chair with one arm and my forehead. fun times] but we made it home in one piece.
so now we have the chair. and i think i want to put it back out on the street:
i sort of like the color, but don't like how it looks with our other furniture. i sort of like the artsy two-sided back instead of the regular three-sided version, but mostly don't. i sort of like finally having another thing to sit on besides our couch, but our front room just feels awkward now that it's there.
b says i should open it up for discussion on this blog and let you guys decide if it stays or goes. what do you think? [and am i a robber for taking this chair after only three hours?]
