This chair has a funny story no matter who you are. It all started one Saturday morning a few months back when I was taking out the trash. I spotted this chair sitting next to the dumpster in our apartment's parking lot. You know in the ghetto we leave things next to the dumpster as apposed to inside just in case someone else finds it to be a treasure. You see this was left by the dumpster so that I could get away with out having to admit I actually dumpster-dived for it. It was fate! Now I have to admit I'm not above dumpster diving since it is a family past-time. This was not just some crappy chair it was a real wooden chair for crying out loud.
So I actually didn't snag the chair right away. I went back inside to try and convince Ty to help me carry it in. I ended up having to plead my case desperately but to no avail he would not budge. He said it was dirty and that we were not getting a chair that way. What a snob I married! I eventually got over it and made him promise to buy me a new one some day when we have a house and he agreed.
Well later that day I saw the chair on my next door neighbor's balcony. You can imagine how upset I was when I saw this and I don't think Tyrone ever heard the end of it that is until now. You see about two month's ago my next door neighbors got evicted (because that is how we roll in the ghetto) and the chair has been sitting on the balcony ever since. They have taken all of their belongings and moved on already but totally left the chair. I've been contemplating a plan to make it mine for the last week (since Ty has been out of town). So on Saturday I put a reminder on my cell phone to steal the chair at 11:00 pm that night. That's right I actually set a reminder up to steal a dirty chair. My friend Jenni came by that night to hang out so I conned her in to helping me lift it over the railing. It's a good thing they live on the ground level and she was a good sport to help me break the law.
I'm telling you this chair is in great condition. It's sturdy and all it needs is a new paint job which I plan to do when the weather gets warmer. I think I'll paint it red. Stay tuned for the after shot.
