I had thought this store might be a scam. Nope, it was really a Herman Miller store, but with a manager who was half an hour late. We were out in front waiting and could see The Geezers chair boxed on a dolly right inside the door…waiting.
Eventually the guy arrived, and after apologies, let G upgrade to the next fancier chair. We made it home, I took his knock off to the Discovery shop, and G made it to the museum to work only a little late.
Then the museum party. The food was really good. Some poor new volunteer and his wife sat with us, and they seemed appalled at the boozy nature of the gift exchange. Even a opinionated old timer who drank admitted there was more alcohol bottles flowing around this year than last. Last year’s high jinks must have triggered this year’s waterfall of bottles. We brought salt and pepper shaker woodies with surf boards on top. They were wildly popular. Traded three times before we could blink.
We managed to get our hands on two non alcoholic gifts before they were swiftly taken away, and we ended up with popcorn and theater tickets, thank you
Captain for letting G steal these. Sherlock Holmes is upcoming, and we zeroed right on those tickets.
G came home to sit in his new chair, and I found myself dozing over a book and NCIS reruns.
