It’s Not All Mary Poppins

No Pressure, of course

A certain affluent neighbourhood in my city has a garage sale every May, a percentage of the proceeds from all participating homes going to the local Food Bank. While strolling and idly scanning the good on offer, I happened across a high chair. Nothing unusual in that, of course. I get a lot of good daycare supplies from this particular sale. Lots of “comfortable”, indulgent mommies and daddies with only one precious child mean lots of good quality, lightly used toys and supplies, at very good prices.

This high chair, however, was in a class of its own. The child who sat in it is obviously intended to Achieve Great Things. Sumptuously padded, upholstered in black leather, it was the chair of a mini Chairman of the Board. Senior Partner, at the very least. Originally $300, yours for only $150!!

Could your little one make the grade?
