Sofa Sentimentality

Farewell, Fair Furniture. 

Former "guest bed." 
Favored front-row seating from Sesame Street to Game of Thrones.
Firmness-depleted. Fluff-less. Fur-covered. 
The Velveteen Rabbit of couches, you were REAL.

"Real isn't how you are made, it's a thing that happens to you. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real, you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand." 
---Margery Williams (abridged)

Sentimentality misplaced, you say? Go ahead. Ask me about the Piggly Wiggly spatula....
