Some of you Longlegs and Superiors alike will remember that a new chair was delivered recently and I laid claim to it. My 'The Him ' has not been able to sit on it except when I'm not there, and when I do allow it he does nothing but moan about my hairs sticking to him. He should be grateful for the warmth I offer.
This light I had settled down in my new chair to relax in sleep after a hard night when all of a sudden there was a clunk sound. I looked up and there was a Longlegs at the hard clearway they call a window and HE WAS REMOVING IT ! Suddenly there was no window,
I hadn't noticed anyone enter the room but suddenly my chair was moving, being pushed back against the wall. It was the small brother of my 'The Him' and there was my 'The Him' pushing the table back against the far wall so the middle of the room was clear.
Then the two of them took the chair next to me and flung it through the gap where the window had been. After this they took the long seat they call the settee and pushed it carefully through the same gap. Am I next? I naturally shot off my chair and sped from the room. When I didn't hear another loud sound I crept back and looked carefully in. My chair was still there and the Longlegs were all concentrating on moving things away from the window area.
Soon I heard one of their big chariots arrive with a grumble. Everyone moved outside through the main clearway except small brother who climbed through the now vanished window howling when he found his legs too short to reach the ground outside and he was forced to sit on something quite sharp to slide over. They loaded the abandoned furniture and the grumble started again as the chariot backed away.
I had just started to think all was well when again a chariot approached. It was a different one this time. I tell you that so you know how observant we Superiors are even under threat. Out got a giant Longlegs and my longlegs joined him. The back of the chariot opened and they carried out a chair. A new chair ! My 'The Him' and the small brother brought it to the space where the window had been and put it down. Small brother ran round to the large clearway and came through to the room rushing past me. Between them they lifted the chair through the gap into the room in the place where the old chair had sat. I saw the giant bring out a settee from the chariot and without help brought it to the window space and pass it through. They moved it to the place the old one had sat.
The first Longlegs who had taken away the window now took a strong grip on it, lifted and replaced it where it had been. He waved goodbye.
Small brother and my 'The Him' brought the table back to the centre and rearranged things and the room was back to normal. My 'The Her' was brought in to rest on the new settee and I jumped up beside her for a hug. All the time I looked round to see if the new chair was the one I would claim now or whether I would let my 'The Him' have that one. Things settled down at last and I was able to eat and then relax in my original chair as though nothing had happened but for a moment I thought my world was turning upside down.
An ancient saying:
A Superior must graciously accept the fact that the restless Longlegs know not the meaning of peace, quiet and conserved energy.
We like changing things what can I say Oscar?
