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:
