72- when your fiance is out of town…

29 Aug


When I was out-of-town for my bachelorette party I got a text from Brian that read “Can you call me?”. I was in the middle of soaking in the hot tub with the girls but I immediately hopped out thinking there was something wrong. When he picked up the phone he excitedly started telling me all about a vintage furniture sale that he stumbled upon. I couldn’t quite figure out why he was interrupting my weekend with such news. Then he dropped the bomb…he bought some. My first thought was…maybe he bought a dining room table! Considering that we’ve been eating on the floor and all, I thought that would be the most logical thing to buy. But, no. Brian bought three vintage theatre chairs that are still attached in a row, a metal and wire credenza and a library card holder. A LIBRARY CARD HOLDER. My mouth dropped open. “You bought vintage theatre chairs for our house without me?” This had to be a joke. Brian doesn’t buy on impulse. Seriously, he will research which shoes he wants for months before actually buying them.  Also, Brian isn’t known to enjoy the art of spending money. Did I say that PC enough? Hope, so. So when he called to tell me he bought vintage theatre chairs and a library card holder, alone, on a Saturday, three months before our wedding, I thought he had quite possibly gone insane. He assured me I would love them and if I didn’t we could sell them. The whole situation was so ridiculous I had to laugh. Then I asked how much he spent on these fabulous new pieces of furniture. At this point I was still imaging him at some elderly mans neighborhood yard sale and then he informed me he spent 1,200. “You spent 1,200 dollars on theatre chairs and a library card holder without me? Have you been drinking?” Strangely enough I couldn’t even be mad because it was just so out of character that I found it hysterical and endearing. I mean, clearly, he was abducted by aliens for a few hours. Thankfully, I like all the pieces. I mean would I have spent 1,200 dollars on them? No.  But they are cool. I’m still not sure where any of it is going. Maybe the theatre chairs in front of our bed just to be funny?

    Oh dear. Well, at least he didn’t buy a 1950 truck while you were out 😮

    Ha ha! I was so curious to see these theater chairs, they have potential!! Maybe you can use the card holder for
    Spices in the kitchen. ( a purpose driven idea) good shopping Brian!

    The theatre chairs are unique, interesting, and functional. You will discover that the library card holder is a storage dream!

    I love the chairs, though! I spent this afternoon digging through vintage shops and would have snatched these right up if I came across them…

    hahaha that is hilarious! I like the chairs, but I am not sure where I would put them in a house. Maybe out on a balcony or a deck?

    I do love those chairs! Placing them at the foot of your bed is hilarious (and a bit vain ;), just kidding ) but I love it. You do realize that you have a guy that just went “antique” shopping on his own? A lot of women would kill for that.
