My new couch—the one that may or may not fit in the building elevator that works only on occasion—has been delayed. I think it wanted to stay warm because we’re experiencing temperatures that would require a heat wave to feel comfy. Initially, the couch was due here on December 1st. Then, the website folks teased me by saying it would land between November 24th and 28th. No worries. I spent two years on hold with Chase Home Loans and have managed to acquire some degree of patience. If it’s not here by January, that’s a whole different story.
