SOL: A Comfy Chair

Do you have a favorite, comfy chair?  You know, the kind of chair that you are so comfortable in when you read or talk, you feel pampered.

My oldest son, W, made me laugh today. W is six foot two with very long legs.  He was explaining how he was working on his English dialectical journals while sitting on a comfortable, old, stage couch today.  W received 10 out of 10 points.  “I know it’s because I wasn’t having to worry about my butt.”  My quizzical look made him explain.  “I didn’t have to think about how sore my butt was from sitting on those hard chairs all day long.  It’s hard to concentrate when it’s hurting.”  I just smiled and nodded.  Yes, a comfy chair is definitely a pleasure.

    I agree that a comfy place to rest makes anything more bearable. I actually had those thoughts today in the dentist’s chair. It was very cushy and I was glad.

    He’s so right. Never underestimate the power of comfort to help the learning process.

    If I take a shower before bed, I have to sit in my comfy chair before I can even think about going to bed. It’s the first step to a good night’s sleep!

    Sons are a endless source of funny things to write about. The butt-to-brain connection cracks me up.
