sit like a lady...


This was Rosebud's and Clodhopper's favorite chair while growing up.

They often would "negotiate" to determine which of them got to sit in the chair first.  

This chair was awesome.  It was round, blue and made of 'slippery-est' of vinyls.  Clodhopper and Rosebud would slide, spin and splay their limbs every-which-direction.  Sitting still was simply not an option.  Maintaining an erect and lady-like posture was out of the question... 

I can still hear The Mom & The GrandMom, "Sit like a lady!"

But we weren't ladies then...we were kids...and we sat like kids...

 I believe that if Rosebud & Clodhopper had access to a cool, round, blue chair today, they still MIGHT still push & shove a little to get first chance at it.... but they would most DEFINITELY still sit, spin, splay and...do all that unladylike sisters do.  Yup...that is what they would do...
