Skip forward a year and a half.
A woman I work with mentioned that her mom was moving and needed to get rid of a very fine entertainment unit. This unit is actually made of wood, lovingly cared for with not a hint of MDF anywhere, and it was free of charge! I said yes, and the arrangements were made. This morning I got up and emptied my ol' sad unit, then got to the work of taking it apart. Taking an MDF formed cabinet apart (I needed to actually take it apart in order to put it into the garbage outside) took some finesse, because parts of it were glued together and others had been reinforced. There was some pushing and sweating on my part, and from somewhere deep inside of it, sawdust. There was also no way it would ever go back together after I got it apart. I bit my lip a bit, and hoped that work pal of mine was going to be able to deliver the unit.
Well, the cabinet was going to be delivered today, however, it would not fit in the designated truck. Hmm. So as I sit here this evening plunking away on my laptop and watching rubbish on television, said TV is perched on top of an old rail chest. It’s a little bachelor pad looking. Now I’ll just have to wait and see what happens tomorrow.
