When my new coffee table arrived I was so excited. I don't get new furniture, except, I got new furniture! I couldn't wait to assemble the table, so while Morgan chatted with me, and the children ran around hitting eat other with the styrofoam packing, I grabbed an allen wrench and got to work. Each stretcher screwed in and foot tightened until the table rose and gleamed.
I lifted the heavy marble top with Morgan's help--not even being pregnant gets you out of heavy lifting around these parts**--and all was in place.
We smiled at each other, and that's when Proximo took the allen wrench next to me and drew it across the top of the table marring the finish.
I gasped and looked at Morgan, "Thirty seconds! I had a new, beautiful table for thirty whole seconds before it was ruined."
How did you vote? +
+When this post was published there was an accompanying poll to vote on how long it took Proximo to scratch my table. 37% of you said 3 minutes. 28% of you said less than 30 seconds, 19% thought 27 minutes, and the rest several hours.
**NO I AM NOT PREGNANT. Morgan is the preggo.
So in case you're keeping score, not only did I make the guest in my house do heavy lifting, but she was also with child. I am awesome.
