Re: WWYD... overweight friend and new furniture...
Well, I asked my husband to leave an hour early, and rearrange the furniture a bit... he is going up to take the old patio chair out of the shed, and put one of the new ones away.
Then, I asked him to move the lazy boy to a comfortable, user friendly spot, and move his own chair to the less user friendly spot. So, Bob will naturally sit in those spots. He's going to tell him "I got this out for you, since it's easier to sit in."
