The Chair

This is a story about two chairs. It all starts many years ago, when Jiggs, Slappy and I all lived in the dorms together. The time had come where we were getting to old for the dorms, and decided to move out. As luck would have it, a new apartment building was just opening up, and all of us were able to rent apartments in the same building; 10 units total.

This is where the chairs come in.

When we moved in, Slappy's dad gave him a gift of two chairs for his apartment. Some of us believed that the chairs were the same ones that Slappy's dad had used in college. They looked like they were right out of the 60's, and may actually have been.

Eventually, Slappy finished school, and it was time for him to move to Boston. The chairs were too large to ship, so instead he left them behind. At the time, Jiggs and I lived in a house together, so he gave them to us, and he told us, "Fine men, you must care for these as if they were your own, because one day I might move back to California, and I will want them back."

Sadly, after a while, I had to move out of the house, because the 2 hours commuting to work each day was becoming too difficult on me. But we had a problem -- what to do with the chairs. You see, there were two, and it was a matching set.

We decided that we would split the pair. That is how I ended up with the chair you see below. Jiggs has the matching chair in his house.



As you can see, the chair is in excellent condition:



Normally I keep that part covered with a blanket to protect it until Slappy's triumphant return to the left coast.

Good to see the chair is doing well.

That is the most hideous chair I have ever seen. I'm surprised an army of torch wielding gay men haven't attempted to break into your place and burn it down in the name of good taste.

did slappy find a job? is he going to work at the lab in new mexico?

what about tasty...did he not go to school with you? when did he come into the picture?

has anyone fucked or received oral on that chair?

slappy said...

Nick: Jiggs set up a machine gun nest on the second floor balcony to prevent that.

Carl: Yes, I found a job - in Boston, not New Mexico. I play with lasers. Today I looked up laser on wikipedia because I was rusty on the basic physics.

Tasty will have to write a post on his own backstory, but he came into the jiggsblog family during grad school.

I can only vouch that no sex has been had in the chairs during my tenure. The chicks I dated weren't into the 70s rattan.

Even I wouldn't have sex in those chairs.

Cheers on the job, Slappy. East Coast rules.

i really like that chair!

slappy said...

Tits: Really? Damn. What about Jiggs covered in honey?

Kendra: And it likes you. If you visit either of the owners I'm sure they'll let you lounge in one. It's even more comfortable than it looks.

SG: Yep, hip. That's how all the ladies describe us...

Slappy: Yep. It's been a pain moving it around and finding a place to put it, but it's always a popular chair when people come over. Turns out it is a great place to use a laptop.

Nick: True, it doesn't match any of my other furniture, but since none of my furniture matches, it's really not a big deal.

Carl: I've never had sex on the chair. However, there have been times when I had guests sleeping in the living room, so it is possible that they had sex in the living room, and therefore may have defiled the chair.

Tits: Why not? It rocks back and forth you know.

Miss K: If you move to the bay area and ask slappy nicely, perhaps you could care for one of the chairs for a while.

Temporary custody of a chair does require a lengthy application process, personality testing, and score of at least 240 on a regulation Skeeball game.

that chair reminds me of this time i was in arizona and let a coyote into the house on accident.

the pattern in the chair confuses me.

amera hearts said...

ps. jiggs - LOVED your comment on monkey's blog! hilarious!

Nick said...

240 in skeeball is way easy.

Brookelina said...

What Nick said. The first time. I know nothing about skeeball.
