Little Sister Pony, Come And Gone

I love when Little Sister Pony comes to visit. She loves to seize life with both hands, and inspires me to get up and do things with her. I've known for a while now that the futon on my couch was basically dead. It was never especially thick, and years of being sat on had squashed it to the point where it was painful to sleep on for overnight guests. But I'd never gotten around to replacing it, because I'd never quite figured out what one does with the old futon when one buys a new futon. But Little Sister Pony demanded something comfortable to sleep on, and there's a futon store on 53rd St., so we went out and -- just like that! -- replaced the futon. We test-sat on most of the futons in the store, and I picked out a nice fat one that's very comfortable. They had it in stock, and they delivered it that very afternoon. From the time we walked into the futon store until the time when we sat on the couch in new comfort was just over an hour and a half. Little Sister Pony helped me shove the old futon downstairs to the apartment building's free table.

We also went and looked at Andersonville. Little Sister Pony is contemplating moving to Chicago after she graduates from her APRN program, and she thinks she would want to live in Andersonville if she did. Everyone keep your fingers crossed that either Northwestern University or the women's health clinic we saw posters for in Women And Children First might want to hire a sweet, fresh-faced APRN right out of Yale next year!

It would be great for you if you sister lived nearby. Mom and Dad Pony could kill two visits with one plane ride. And Little Sister Pony sounds very efficient. I like that in a relative.

Little Sister Pony isn't necessarily efficient herself, but she is the cause of efficiency in other people. And it would be fantastic if she came to Chicago. She'd be living about twenty miles away from me, so we wouldn't be in each other's hair, but we could still get together on a regular basis.

Oh yeah, getting rid of old stuff is a chore. Especially if it's big. Out here in the 'burbs we live for Amnesty Day, which in my suburb appears to happen at completely random intervals about every two years.

The lady at the futon store said to throw the old futon away, but that's kind of hard to do in an apartment building that doesn't have really good dumpsters. But I figure, weirder things have turned up at the free table.

Two Ponies in Chi-Town. That would be quite invigorating.

We'd catch them coming and going. A North Side Pony and a South Side Pony.

Little Sisters seem to have that effect...at least mine does as well. It would be great fun if you ended up close enough to visit routinely but not to disturb each other on a daily basis!

I'm so rooting for Little Sister Pony to come live in Chicago. That would be awesome.

Little Sister Pony sounds very cool. Will she come here and clean out my stuff?

And what's a free table? Do you just leave stuff you don't want there for someone else to take?

Little Sister Pony is indeed very cool.

Yup. Exactly. It's a grad school thing to do.
