Thursday was assembling an Ikea piece. Do you ever find yourself in disagreement over a generalized joke? What I mean is... I get the humor around the challenges of assembling furniture, the frustration, the failures. It's one of those gimmicks that is supposed to be universally recognized and laughed over... that it won't work, the instructions are confusing, parts are missing, it will take all day... etc. But I can only half laugh at that joke, because I really love assembling Ikea furniture. Love. It. Sure, some pieces are harder than others, and I once did get an end table that was finally proven to be impossible to construct. But. Eh... no biggie. Most times, I find the tools I need, and the parts match the descriptive pictures. I wrestle a bit with large pieces, or have to rethink how to follow the next step, but I like it. Some of the designs are clever, even ingenious, and I feel challenged, then accomplished, when the job is done.
