In a month I'm headed back to Utah for a trade show. As part of my campaign to be forever banned from the state, I've decided to set up my exhibit as a model of Dr. Freud's consulting room. I will sit in an armchair, and my customers can lie down on a couch. I can then say "Tell me about your attitude problems." This is a hilarious joke if you happen to be a spacecraft controls person.
The problem is making this all happen from a continent away. There is a pretty good furniture rental company in the area that I've used before, but their inventory isn't infinite. This is what I've found from their catalog:
The chair and table aren't bad. The chaise is the perfect shape -- the others available wouldn't be comfortable to just sit in, which I expect my less adventurous customers to opt for. But the bright white just isn't right. Anybody have any bright ideas on how I can fix this? Some sort of blanket with lots of tassels maybe? I'd either have to find it in Utah, or bring it with me from Toronto.
probabilistic has suggested that I give out cigars. If they were Cuban I'd certainly get kicked out. Maybe I should get a set of Rorschach blots, and label them "Generalized Solution to the Three Body Problem."
