I feel so sorry for these bean bag chairs. They don’t seem to know school has started. Someone should have told them.
They made their way out onto the beach early this morning, reporting at the usual hour. They’ve spent the whole day waiting patiently, or mostly they were patient. A few like the light blue one closest to us has been slumped in a pout since the sun’s rays angled into the afternoon hours. And the red ones. I considered telling the chairs the truth, but those red beanies seem ready to revolt. They move and watch everyone who passes. Being stampeded by a crush of heavy bean bags would not be fun.
