Poor Lloyd. It just gets worse and worse. First he loses his girlfriend. Then he loses contact with Russ. Now he loses his sofa. And, just to add accelerant to injury, he sets it on fire, in the middle of the street. (The only person who'll be happy about this is Eileen because it gives her a chance to call Paul the Fireman - ed).
I know what you're thinking. That's a nice piece of furniture (oh, and isn't it a shame that Chris hit his head). Sure is. The nicest sofa that money can buy from the Manchester Ikea and that can fit on the top of a Streetcars taxi.
If you're looking in the Ikea catalogue, I believe it's called a 'Wankeröost"
- Easy to keep clean (or burn) with removable, flammable covers.
- Seat cushions filled with high resilience foam to provide comfortable support for Chris when he moves in
- Reversible back cushions filled with polyester fibers can be used as pillows for when you're sleeping there night after night because you fell out with Cheryl over Chris' brain tumour
- A range of coordinated covers makes it easy for the neighbours to see the sofa when you set it on fire in the Street.
By the way, no word yet from the four Coronation Street stars who are visting Montreal on Thursday. My offer of an all-expenses paid, luxury, gourmet Montreal lunch of smoked meat or poutine still stands.
Please see Monday's post for all the details.
