This Is Sarah

This is Sarah.

Sarah is one of my neighbors.

I called her when she was on her way home from work, so she came over and tried to help me pry the sofa loose, but even two of us couldn't get the thing to budge. In the process, we broke an arm off of it, so we took a hammer the wooden frame hoping to break it, but we couldn't even make a dent in it.

Just as she was about to go downstairs and get a mini-saw-thing she had (I think that's the correct term for it), she realized she locked herself out of her apartment. Now the two of us are sitting on my new couch watching Ghost (I recorded it), waiting for Kate to come home.

I am so sorry it's stuck...this happened to me once, too! It's like that episode of FRIENDS when they are trying to get Ross' sofa upstairs and he keeps yelling "PIVOT!" Good luck!

OMG Karen!!!

I am sorry, but I am crying laughing - seriously!

I totally did the same thing when I moved to NYC, but with a dresser. I decided I had to get rid of it RIGHT NOW, so I thought it would be a good idea for my 5'1" self to carried a 6" long solid wood dresser down two flights of winding staircase myself.

I wish my neighbor who found me trapped at one of the turns had taken a picture. It would have looked about like that, only with me holding it up.

Hope you get the saw thingy!

Notice how Beverly is taking the whole situation in stride? She's probably thinking, "Stupid humans, I know how to unwedge the thing but I won't tell them."
