Here’s the deal. I have so many award winning lists (“award” is such a subjective word) to share with the world that I’m diving back into my award winning series (see above parenthesis) with today’s special Monday edition, Makya McBee Vs. Other People’s Lists – Volume 2. I know what you’re thinking, “Did you not notice the dearth of comments from your last list? There was no debate. No one cares about your silly lists.” To which I respond…firstly…words hurt. Didn’t your parents ever tell you that words hurt? Granted, they don’t hurt as much as, say, an ice pick. But still. And, secondly, who uses words like “dearth”?
Besides, that list was fairly mundane. A list of movies. Every blog has a list of movies. But I’ve got some far more interesting lists in store. Real conversation starters. Like, for example, the top ten places to sit. Who hasn’t pondered over this topic for hours? Wait, I know what you’re thinking, is it…“Why are you always trying to guess what I’m thinking? You never get it right.” I thought so. Anyway, without further ado and/or dearth…
The Top Ten Places to Sit
11. Swing (Swing sets are great places to make decisions and perfect for feeling like you’re going somewhere while you’re not…but they aren’t good long term resting places and are more novelty than truly good places to sit)
10. Canoe (The unique rocking motion you get with a canoe – assuming it’s in the water, and why else would you be sitting in a canoe, weirdo? – is great, if only the seat itself were actually comfortable, this would have been higher up the list)
9. Lap (The romantic in you might want to put this one at the top, but come on, if you’re not a kid how long is this really fun?)
8. Car (We take this one for granted, but it’s kind of awesome…we’re sitting down at sixty miles per hour)
7. Ski Lift (How often do you get to admire a view as you dangle your feet twenty feet over the fresh powder below? I don’t know how to ski, but I sure enjoy a nice ski lift)
6. Toilet (I’m not going to make a ridiculous pun here and say that this one should be #2 – let’s just be adults about this and admit that sitting here usually comes with some amount of relief. Plus there’s the personal space. It’s really a pretty nice place to sit when you think about it – they don’t call it a throne for nothing)
5. Couch (Just because we’ve become accustomed to it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t take a moment to recognize the importance of the simple couch. Without it we’d have to stand when we watch TV…or sit on the floor like animals…or go outside and exercise…yikes, I shudder at the thought)
4. Jacuzzi (This is a tricky one. Jacuzzis always seem like they’re going to be more fun than they actually are. The idea of a Jacuzzi is wonderful. Getting into the Jacuzzi is pretty special. Five minutes later…you’re just cooking and pruning and wondering how long you should stay. Still, the allure keeps this one high on the list)
3. Tree (Not just any tree, mind you. Any random branch is no better than a canoe. But if you find that special nook it’s like a discovered seat. A seat that nature tried to hide. When you combine treasure hunt with cozy rump roost – that’s not too shabby)
2. Arm chair (A large, luxurious arm chair offers you all of the comfort of a couch with all of the not having to sit next to other people of an arm chair)
1. Office chair (Maybe you won’t agree, but to me, this is the best place to sit. It’s comfortable. I can spin around in circles. And it’s where I sit when I write my lists. Can’t beat it, baby)
So, what do you think? Did I overlook your favorite place to sit? Feel free to utilize the comments section to join the discussion and let me know which of my seating choices didn’t sit well with you.
