“Good morning, Bossy,” you may be saying. “And what do we have going on here?”
Well, Bossy will tell you exactly what’s going on here: it’s her living room sofa. Her living room sectional from Crate & Barrel, to be exact. It’s the first real sofa Bossy has ever owned, and it was purchased several years ago after a lot of thought. Let’s put it this way: if Bossy had put that much thought into the selection of a husband, she would right now be married to a microfiber chaise in “pottery”.
Anyway. This sofa. The first problem is a little something Bossy likes to call A Big Something: the family lap pony and her propensity to lie on sofas. All day. So the first thing Bossy did was go to Ikea and buy a cheap throw blanket the same color as her lap pony, and she spread this blanket over her living room sectional until every last inch of the smooth pottery-colored microfiber was covered—which isn’t that big a deal considering the only reason Bossy purchased the sofa was for the pottery color. That and the microfiber.
And the next problem Bossy encountered with her sofa was this:
Because as it turns out, this isn’t a living room sectional at all—it is a tiny ship set sail on a three-hour tour. A three-hour tour with snacks.
But ever so occasionally Bossy is able to remove the Ikea throw blanket from her tiny ship so that she may throw said throw blanket in the washing machine. And on such occasions, Bossy gets to stand back for two and a half seconds in order to admire her sofa, before collapsing the rear cushions onto the horizontal surface so the lap pony is unable to climb up when the throw blanket isn’t there.
And that, dear
readers reader, is what is going on in that first photo.
Which is what today’s Ten-Word Challenge is all about. In exactly ten words, can you tell Bossy about a room in your house or a piece of furniture that is not being utilized to its full advantage due to pesky kids, or pets, or mates, or pet mates, or kiddy pesks?
