A friend came over yesterday for a lovely but frugal catch up. She brought snacks since she'd been experimenting with new recipes, and we drank iced water because it was so bloody hot.
She plopped on my lounge, put her feet on the coffee table, then caught herself and said, "Oh, is that ok???"
"What, and ruin my $10 coffee table? :D Go for it!"
Coffee mugs, feet, matchbox car races with friends' kids... anything goes.
(Funnily enough, some of those kids belong to friends who have a trendy melamine coffee table. It can't get wet, can't get hot, and is so unstable they have to tighten the legs every couple of weeks. Why you would buy that with a three-year-old in the house is beyond me.)
