Cool and Uncomfortable

I have a rather small living room but a nice size 52″ HDTV. I enjoy nothing more than inviting friends over to watch a movie on DVD. The problem: not enough room. I can seat three people on my sofa that faces the TV and can put a chair on each end of the sofa to accommodate two more. That’s the limit. That’s five. I cannot have three couples as there’s no room. Therefore, I seldom have a partner for a movie evening, which is okay. Recently, Dave, a friend of many years, had dinner with me at Po Folks and then came to the house to watch a movie. Dave is way over 6 feet tall, something that I always re-notice when he comes into the house. As we sat down to watch the movie, he said, “Do you want to move the recliner over?” to which I replied, “We can or you can sit on the sofa.” We both then ended up sitting on the sofa. During the movie, I began to notice that he was moving around a lot. His legs did not fit comfortably under the coffee table causing him to stretch them as far as he could and continue to move them around. By the time I paid notice to his discomfort, it was too late. I just wrote him an e-mail promising him more comfort the next time he comes to my house to watch a movie together. I hope he will forgive me, and I will from now on try to be aware of the physical comfort of guests in my home.
