RIP Chair I knew thee well…Posted: September 3, 2010
It’s finally happened.
My chair, the one I’ve spent the most time in, the one supports me when I type, the one that’s always been there for me, has gone to chair heaven. I was sitting the other day basking in the heat that my newly repaired boiler was pumping into the central heating when, with a loud crack, the back fell off. Needless to say I went over and ended up lying with my feet in the air. I imagine it was probably very comical but as I was alone it was only me who laughed… once I finished groaning in pain. Now I am in the market for a new Chair.
See I capitalised that last word. I don’t think that many people are fully aware of the relationship between a man, his keyboard and Chair. It’s very personal. It’s something that’s built up over time… I invested a lot of time in that Chair. Now that Chair is gone I feel the need to shed a little tear. If there was a Chair graveyard I would be there scattering lilies all over the place.
RIP Chair you will be missed.
Now I am in the market for a new one. It’ll have to be one that I want to spend time with; it’ll have to comfortable and also comfortable with my [sitting] habits. In short it’ll be one that I want to spend time building my relationship with. If only there was a dating website that allowed like minded people to meet the correct Chair…P
P.S. I want an Aeron. I used to work in a business where we had one. I am not kidding when I say that they are the best I’ve sat in… ever. If anyone knows where I can get a good one at a reasonable price (no, I am not paying £800 or ever £400) then they need to let me know.
