Nope.  Me and my partner just find it a bit uncomfortable you weirdo.

Like is attracted to like, as they say.  Happy for you.

Maybe wait before thinking about kids though.

Delightful.  I can't imagine why someone would leave a bag of shit outside your door.

Asking for advice on buying a sofa on CaB is like going to the food bank and asking for advice on your stocks and shares ISA.

It was you then, TFM, makes sense.

I expect you and your partner or mum have super arses.

Most sofas seem to be designed for people with short calves, but really long upper legs (really long distances between bum and knee).

That or I just don't know how to sit.

Everyone has these corner things

I have a sofa, and it’s fucking fantastic. It’s not in the corner, though, so that’s where you’re going wrong.

Move your corners, hun. xoxoxoxox

Our sofa is way too deep & makes me feel claustrophobic so I tend to just bring one of the kitchen breakfast-bar stools into the living room and sit on that.

Oh hai, touchingcloth, nice to see you back. Royal Family (Bullshit) Watch needs you.

Yeah, probably would but only in a very sexy way.

It puts me in mind of rugae:

I had been thinking of the rugae in the roof of the mouth, but rugae are also found in the sexy organs so you're probably right.

At the very least it'll eat loads of crumbs and lint and nuts and coins and all the other shit that ends up in sofa's crevices.

This is a great thread. I especially liked it on Page 20 when, after much sensitive and honest discussion of people's anxieties about cremation, somebody says "Is it true that your head explodes?"
