There's A New Couch In Town....
Our last couch was a thorn in Dad's side. It was a small, skinny leather couch that he bought because the larger, more sophisticated-looking leather couch he bought wouldn't fit down the stairs so back to the store it went. Mom warned him about buying a leather couch for the basement and after two years of cold naps, pillows that slip and slide and less-than-adequate accomodations for both Mom and Dad to snorgle, Dad raised his hands in defeat. "I hate this couch! You were right! We're getting a new one!"
Well, it took a little longer than expected as a few couches were purchased before Mom and Dad found one that would fit down the stairs and into the family room. This sectional came in three separate pieces which was it's saving grace. Now Mom and Dad are always down here watching tv and movies with us. There is enough room for ALL of us on this big couch!
It's a little higher than the last one so I've had to adjust my Launch Plan, but it's so big and deep and soft, it's the perfect place for me to boss around those Stupid Blankets I got for Christmas! And Binky has her own little house up there to snuggle in too. Sometimes she even comes out to help me keep those Blankets in line - "What did you say to my Fluffy?! Oh he is NOT dumb, no sir! You get a bite for that!" That's my girl. She's hot when she's tough.
So Binks and I aren't the only ones snorgling in the family room anymore. At first I was kind of annoyed to have Mom and Dad around EVERY evening, cuddling us bunnies on the new big red couch, being all goofy towards each other. "Geez you two! I don't know how much more of this lovin' I can take!"
"Oh Fluffy!" Mom says, "What can we say? You and Binky inspire Mommy and Daddy to snorgle each other!"
I guess that's not such a bad thing. But just to reiterate, I might be all snuggly with my Binks, but I really am one Big Tough Lop when it comes to those Stupid Blankets....
