Pop Quiz:

You're at Timo's Coffeehouse, sitting alone in the tiny front-window alcove. You're deep into daydreaming, cogitating, contemplating, and/or generally zoning out, when these really great, wooden chairs begin to . . . *speak* to you. Wha'd'ya do?

A. You *speak* back, engaging in animated debate until experiencing a total psychotic break.

B. You ignore them. Everyone knows that talking to chairs is like conversing with a bump on a log.

C. You shove most of the furniture to the very back of the room ("Out of my way, tables!") leaving one table and two very expressive chairs front and center. Then, spend 30 or 40 minutes kneeling on a concrete floor while you, and your ubiquitous Canon, put these unsuspecting pieces through their photographic paces.

(Hey, how hard should a Pop Quiz be?)

Hi, guys! This is a "hit & run" post; I have a show coming up in one week and I'm w-a-y busy (not to mention, hopelessly disorganized).

Have an amazing weekend!
