Well the conversation was a little more elaborate than that but it ended up with two men carrying a huge, solid oak-framed mirror into the back of dad's car. It's those cafe pixies again. My step-mum Sal said something about lucky or jammy or something similar and she's right.
The story goes like this....
Bought desk on eBay.
Dad drives me to collect desk from Teignmouth.
Can't find sellers home!
"My flat is opposite the Indian Takeaway." (Flat?!! Flat!!! It's a huge oak desk and I have a dad with a bad back...I'm thinking, "How many stairs?")
Find flat and Seller Kim.
Can't lift desk.
Owner of takeaway offers man-power.
He collects a customer and puts desk pieces into car.
We thank men-power and off they go.
Kim asks if I would like a mirror.
"Ummmmm...." I reply.
You can take it for free." says Kim, "It matches the desk, seems a shame to separate them. Come and have a look."
I climb up four flights of stairs and see the mirror. Mirror = gorgeous.
Kim fetches takeaway owner and his customer for a second time.
Up four flights.
Down four flights with mirror. Mirror = heavy.
They put mirror in the car.
I hug Kim.
End of story.
So we are jammy and lucky. Thank you cafe pixies.
