Every item of furniture was bought at Ikea.Our college student made his fourth move in four years (for his privileged elders the move was from one dorm room to another, but it’s a little more cumbersome when one has to make an unplanned move from a house to an off-campus apartment), and we’ve been in San Diego helping him get settled. The first couple of days were spent shopping, lining shelves, and assembling furniture.
We finished our tasks and looked around. La Jolla sparkled. The highs were only in the 70’s (if this is how global warming affects summers in the southernmost tip of California, bring it on), and some mornings I even wore a sweater. I told the office I’d be a little late getting back. Some of the best vacations are unplanned.
