As the youngest in a family
, (we prefer collectors
) I've gathered a rather prodigal
amount of furniture that I'm rather attached to.
Now the problem of a 2200 mile move waits ahead of me. It can't all come. In fact, nothing over the size of a lamp
can come, due to gross tonnage laws
- I drive a small sports car
that I wouldn't trust attaching a trailer
What does one do when faced with such a conundrum? Throw it all away? Donate to Salvation Army
I think not
I shall, in the time-held tradition
of countless other 20 somethings, cart it all back to the parental homestead
, lovingly pack it all away in the cellar, where my beloved pieces of furniture
will await my eventual return.
Except for this chair, it's getting strapped to the hood.
