The Tipping Point

Friday, T and Bird were wrestling on one of the big, horrible chairs. There were lots of giggles and gales of laughter, until this happened:

They found the tipping point for a big, horrible chair. It was slow, inexorable, the backwards tilt accelerating into a THUD!

Then there was a moment of silence before we all dissolved into a fit of hilarity. Eventually, I did put down my camera and help T get up...but not until after I swept up the mess that was under the chair before it tipped.



No chairs were injured in the filming of this episode. Dang.

Oh well. Maybe next time some chairs will get harmed.

At least T. didn't get a head injury! I'm with Charlie, next time maybe a chair will suffer...

OK the funniest part of this is that you did some sort of"Wait, wait! Hold it right there! I gotta get a broom!" Hilarious!!!!!

Kyddryn said...

Charlie, hope springs eternal.

Susan, you can't injure granite. ;-)

MereCat, but I know you feel me - wouldn't you have done the same? Camera in one hand, broom in the other, muttering "I am SO blogging this!!"

Tee hee hee! I can just see it. :) I bet that was a good laugh for all of you. At least the big, horrible chair has lots of big, cushy padding to make it a soft landing!

Kyddryn said...

True, Kit...but I don't think padding would have been an issue...
