We ordered our sofa this morning. Put down a lot of bucks, and now we wait. This whole experience with this particular purveyor of sofas has been so easy, with such good customer service, and fabric options, and other ways of customizing furniture (want the sofa longer? done. Want it shallower, done and done) that I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop. Will it get here when they say it will? Will they get the color right? Will the dye lots match? Will it be damaged on arrival? Whatever happens, you'll read about it here.
In the meantime, I am waiting impatiently for the promised rain. Yesterday they said it would be raining by three, now they're saying it will rain by nine. This is what happens: Where I live, they always promise rain; in fact, on the news, the regular weather report is called Storm Tracker! as if we live in the path of a permanent hurricane. But, really, we've had a drought. We don't get a lot of rain, so when there is even the slightest chance of rain, its at the top of the news, we all get excited, and then it doesn't materialize. Like this afternoon. Its supposed to be raining RIGHT NOW, and nothing! Once it does rain, lots of people (myself included, to be fair) completely forget how to behave in wet weather; we forget how to drive and break and merge, we forget how to walk with umbrellas, we don't wear proper shoes, our children are soaking wet in school all day, and we're generally clueless. People native to areas of the country where it rains all the time look at the chaos around them and go, "Are they serious?" Don't really know where I'm going with this, except to say that I am staring at the sky waiting to get hit in the face with the first drop.
The other night, I put deodorant on under my pajamas before I went to bed. I was a little distracted and meant to reach for the lip balm. I'm glad I didn't put lip balm under my arms, or deodorant on my lips. As it was, I was just fresh all night. I'm not sure I can put off that nap. I'm fading, fading, fading...
ok, so I want to know where you got the sofa... all this good PR and no name. Give it up!
Zebra on East Francisco Blvd.
I can't wait to try it out! Do you have to wait 3 months?
2 - 3 WEEKS!
