Do You Have a Chair?


I don’t mean a chair. Most people have a chair. You probably have lots – in the kitchen, in the family room, in the living room, in the dining room, in your office, maybe even in your bedroom. 

I mean a Chair.

I love my Chair. My Chair is where I collapse at the end of the day. After dinner, after chores, after finishing work. When I am Done, I collapse into my Chair. I do not sit. I collapse. And to reiterate the obvious, I am DONE. My feet are up. My blankie is on. I am reading the newspaper or a book. I am watching something on TV. I have a cup of tea next to me. I have my phone to communicate with whoever contacts me. But if there is anything that must be done out of my Chair, it will have to wait until tomorrow. (Yes, ok, all that tea, yeah, I do have to get up to go to the bathroom. But that’s it. No more exceptions to the rule. I am DONE.)

Now as I said, I love my Chair, but like many loves, this one has been pushing it this week. My Chair has been totally overdoing it. It’s like I cannot go two steps without it calling me to come back.

I try to do some work, but there’s that Chair again whining for attention.

My home is going to be painted and I have to get everything packed up by Friday. I try packing, but after 5 minutes, I hear that Chair! Geez, now it’s whimpering for me.

Maybe I’d like to go outside for a walk, you know. But noooo. I tried but I didn’t even get to the door before that Chair started moaning: “Come back! Come baaaack!”

Really Chair. We need to have a talk. I love you but I can’t be with you 24/7!

Mark my words, as soon as I recover from this case of pneumonia, I am going to teach my Chair some discipline.
