Blue Sofa
Friday, Dec. 06, 2002, 3:09 p.m.

Just Wondering: Why is a blue inflatable sofa sitting on my front lawn?

What I Have Learned: Be careful what you buy. You may never get rid of it.

Blue plastic sofas. Who me? Only if they are inflatable and can be used to ride down hills covered in snow.

I couldn't get the inner tube sled. I told you about that. Snow. Ice. Bad driving conditions. "No way, kid," I said yesterday. "I don't do snow-driving and you can't make me."

Next thing I know there it is - big, blue, covered with kids, and moving fast.
The big blue sofa.

The big blue sofa came to live at our house last year for the holidays and seemed in some of our family's minds to be the centerpiece of gracious living. It was quietly deflated sometime during the deep dark of winter. We thought we had seen the last of it. Until now.

The big blue sofa is gone right now. I think it is enjoying life in the common area of the neighborhood taking some hills and providing some spills. I'm not worried. I know the big blue sofa is coming back.

Somehow this story reminds me of The Velveteen Rabbit and The Brave Little Toaster mixed up together to provide a very strange real-life result. Truth, as we all know, is indeed often stranger than fiction.
