Went to Ikea with Elaine to get a few piece of furniture……
As much as I can survived with just a sofa and tv, I can’t live without a dining table, a bookcase …well, I’ll need a tallboy to put some of my stuff rite???
Dining table is important, otherwise how else can I cook and have my friends over for dinner? Its been ages since I’ve cooked and baked!
Bookcase…my precious books…..how can I let my books be homeless? And its 100% practical….with all the magazines that I buy, I need somewhere to put them so that my place look reasonably tidy rite?
Tallboy….well, the bedroom is utterly bare. Just my bed. Where else do I put my stuff ??? Odds and ends are lying on the floor in boxes………I can’t even vacumm the room properly! So…that falls under the category being “ pratical” ?
Anyway…all these 3 things, even though flatpacked…are really heavy. Now, this is the time that you don’t want to be independent and adopt the do-it-yourself attitude! Plus, I don’t think I can actually lift them myself…..
So we ask some of the Ikea staff to get them from the storage area. Quite cute actually…..but then cute guy left us stranded , and his colleague have to step up and do the job instead.
Now….Cute guy appear, and sheepishly tell his colleague sorry, that the job was passed on to him. And the “colleague”, who is rather cute too….gave us a wink, and say “ Its alright girls, I’m stronger than him!”"
That’s totally unnecessary, but if it makes him feels happier…..well, he can be as strong as he wants! We need him to move the stuff anyway!!
