I’ve always shunned La-Z-Boy recliners. They’re ugly, tacky, clunky and cheesy – the iconic accessory for dreary, uninspiring life in the suburbs.
Well, now we live in the suburbs. And after remodeling his living room, our next-door neighbor gave us a big, old leather Green Monster (pictured here). It might make a nice accompaniment to our television and dedicated beer fridge in our finished basement and playroom.
The verdict? La-Z-Boy recliners rock! It’s comfortable – it conforms to me! It’s perfect for kicking back with a few Heinekens while catching up on TiVoed episodes of The Daily Show, South Park and Cops.
As my cousin Smoke underscored, “you’ll never get out of it again! Teach Julian how to bring you beers and food and you only get up for bathroom run!” He’s right.
My La-Z-Boy is my new throne. I am a king now.
