The Foam



When we go to other peoples homes, the first thing we notice is the couch. We sit on it with reverence, and stroke it in awe. We can't hide the intensity in our voices, and so people look at us kind of funny when we say, "We REALLY like your couch." They probably have sudden images in their minds of us sneaking off with it, and don't quite know why. Maybe because we are thinking about the exact same thing.



Here is our couch. His parents found it for us- we aren't sure exactly where- and we got it for free. Can't beat that right? On first glance, it looks like a normal enough couch. A little on the small side, but not awful looking.



Upon closer inspection, you would notice that The Foam has no support in it. I don't mean it's saggy- I mean its made entirely out of foam. If you lean on the arms, they just fold right over. But my personal favorite is the way it folds out! See? it turns into a bed. You know you want to come over and sleep on it!!



Kurt hates it. He won't even sit on it. But I think its great. It's amazingly ghetto, and this is something we will be able to look back and laugh about for the rest of our lives. PLUS someday we will appreciate a new couch in ways that few people know.


Until then, we will just keep making up excuses to visit other peoples couches (Ha! Our friends think we are coming over to visit THEM!) and pretend for a minute that they are our own.

I still dont have any furniture in my living room (except a tv) and i continually justify it by saying it is my dog's playroom...but really its just an empty room with shoes strewn about. Its just a rule Helena...newlyweds have to struggle. look it up.
