Glancing out the window of my apartment
I saw that some neighbors were setting up for a lawn sale.
My eyes went to a piece of furniture.
Oh I love the golden colored wood frame and the muslin cloth cushions.
But what is it exactly?
To satisfy my curiosity, I walked outside for a closer look.
It was a Futon sofa in two sections
that could be used as either a loveseat & ottoman combination
or as a bed.
I loved it and it would be perfect in my little apartment.
Then the “buts” set in:
But I don’t have room unless I get rid of my current sofa.
But I would need help moving the sofa out and the futon in.
But my apartment isn’t clean enough to have people in to help me.
And by the time I had put my buts to rest the futon was gone.
However all was not lost
as it did give my friends an opportunity to coin the phrase
“Don’t fut on yourself”
