She realizes immediately that she had made ' a massive mistake' as the couch was so huge that all of her existing furniture looked tiny. As well, it was ill-matched to her contemporary pieces.
Did she return the sofa? One assumes so. However, she continues: 'Much to my husband's confusion (and annoyance, I'm sure), I opted to keep this piece of furniture and change everything else to suit it......Who changes their entire home and creates such upheaval to accommodate one sofa?'
WHAT!? Even with its jocular style, this article spells E X C E S S all over it.

Earlier this morning, I had read a Facebook posting by Rev Al of the Dandelion Society.
Hi Face book friends! You would not think that it is only 7 days until the Federal election, and yet no one would think that I would have to beg for sleeping bags, for the homeless. I gave away 100 sleeping bags in this last three weeks and I need your help. You can drop them off at Rain Coast Business Address: 1027 Pandora Ave, Victoria, BC V8V 3P6
I am only guessing, but I believe that this magnificent couch might have translated into about 300 people in our Victoria community having a warm place to sleep. And the purchasing of all the new furniture...I won't even guess.
Remember, a sleeping bag may be the only home a street person has.
