I was recently going through some of dad's old posts and found some pictures of the perch he made for Orbit. Well, let me tell you- I was livid!
"Dad," I yelled. "WTF?" I threw in, just for extra drama as I held him with the fiercest southern glare I could muster. "He got that, and I have to risk my life balancing myself on this tiny little ledge?" Boy, I was really laying into him, and by now he was quaking like a baby, eyes welling up with tears and looking around frantically for mom to protect him.
"I-I- I'm sorry, milady," he stammered. As he bowed in subservience I knew he'd had enough. "Rise at once, and stop with the sniveling!"
Okay, that never happened.
One day recently dad came home with this. He called it a prototype, and wanted to see if I'd be happy with it. Well, prototype or not, it remains.
He made it so they can close the drapes without it sticking out, and when they open the drapes it folds out so I can sit on it and enjoy the outdoors.
