Barf Proof

Barf Proof

September 6, 2011


So, the chair in my classroom that the little girl threw up on went straight to the dumpster. Sometimes things like that are salvageable; sometimes you just cut your thrift-store-chair losses and look for an alternative.

Lloyd and I stopped at Menards on Sunday and found this chair. It’s from an outdoor furniture set and it’s practically perfect in every way! Wide enough for two friends to share a book, soft enough for a sleepy/sad child to curl up, and best of all – soft, yet waterproof (and wash-off-able) cushions. If worse comes to worse, brand-new cushions could replace these.

Plus, the janitors can sweep under it.

Bonus: It was on sale! Let the viruses begin!

Wait – I don’t mean that.

I really, really don’t mean that.

Drat my tempting of fate.

    Very nice chair! Very nice!

    And the arms on that chair would be perfect for you to make a something or other to hold barf bags…just in case. But keep in mind, barf bags have feelings too:
