You see that chair I’m sitting in in the third photo? The hubs grabbed it from a table off to the side for this impromptu photoshoot. Then, when we were done with it (And getting ready to do the standing photos), I went to pick it up and put it back. My husband told me in a warning tone, “Careful, that’s heavy!” At which point I laughed and shook my head. This looked like one of those aluminum chairs from Ikea that could blow over with a strong wind.
So, expecting the chair to weigh no more than two pounds, I nonchalantly picked it up to move it. Let me tell you, looks can be deceiving. You know how I know this? Well, I can think of a couple of examples off the top of my head. That chair weighed like 30 pounds… and I have two GIANT bruises and a stubbed toe that can prove it.
Another example? While I look fairly put together in these photos, I’m actually screaming in pain on the inside, and half of the items that I’m wearing have been coated in spray paint… Smoke and mirrors people. Smoke and mirrors.
