Claire has recently observed that I love to sit in chairs. Whenever I see a chair, she says, I always sit down in it. I even sit in other people’s chairs, like in restaurants and public places like that. I countered that it doesn’t seem that unreasonable or even unusual to sit in chairs, that being their primary function. Still, Claire has dubbed me a “chair fan” for loving to sit in chairs so much. Occasionally I find myself sitting down to, say, I don’t know… eat dinner, when Claire will say, “Dad, you’re such a chair fan!” She always has a whimsical smile on her face. This may be the first recorded case of Claire persistently teasing me.
