Of sofas and shrinks

Narrowband recently suggested (jokingly, of course!) that I see a psychiatrist after he found out what was on my desktop. Which got me to thinking... I wonder why psychiatrist offices have leather sofas for you to recline on. Is it because leather is easier to clean up just in case a bad spate of crying leads to something being spewed onto the sofa? Or is it to lull you into a false sense of luxury so that you don't feel pain at the steep fees you fork out? On the contrary, the sofas at the doctor's offices are normally tattered and torn and in great need of replacement, and are mostly not leather. So does this mean that psychiatrists earn more than doctors? Hmm, I wonder. Food for thought! And what are espresso sectionals? Do I need a psychiatrist to decipher this?

I sleep better on my sofa than I do in bed! HOW?

may: I wouldn't mind too, except my living room isn't airconditioned and I think the leather sofa would get hot really fast!

wennnn: It's nice as long as the weather isn't too hot! LOL!
