So, I wanted to buy a bean bag for the kids. And I went on Amazon to search for a beanbag. Something little and fun that the kids would enjoy. We already have one, thanks to Joyce Gordon for giving it to us, but the problem is the kids fight over it…. A lot. So, the solution was that we would buy another beanbag chair, so they don’t have to fight.
So, Amazon was the perfect place to order such an item. A ton of beanbag chairs, and we picked one that we thought could work. We looked at the pictures and thought yeah… this would work. But I am afraid we misjudged and miscalculated the size of dang thing. Apparently, the dimensions of the beanbag chair that were posted in Amazon were the packaging size, and not the product size. But I should have known better, because the package weighed 45 pounds. Do you know any kind of beanbag chair that weighs 45 pounds? I should have thought about it more.
So, for the past few days this thing has been growing. Apparently, it was vacuumed sealed and said it would take 4-5 days to fully “fluff” out. This picture you see was taken on day 3. And if you are curious about size comparison… above the beanbag is a 70-inch TV. This thing takes up about 1/5 of our living room now!
Now, if you are reading this and wondered why I shouldn’t just return it. I ask you…how?? This thing is 45 pounds and is the size of a mini cooper. I have no idea how to get it out of the door, find a box to fit it in, and get it to the post office. Totally unreturnable!
So, what’s the solution? Well, have fun with the dang thing! This thing is about the size of our couch, all of us can be on this beanbag comfortably and we have all taken naps on it, played games on it, jumped on it. And to be honest, it’s now part of the home. Sure, its size is intimidating, but it’s great with the kids! They both can enjoy it, lounge in it, relax, and most importantly, not fight for it. Plenty of room for both! When Amazon gives you lemons, you make lemonade right? Tghis beanbag has two more days to fully reach its potential size. Can't wait to see how big its going to be on day 5.

Hey this is Rev. Brian Choi's random thought throughout my week. Most of this stuff, will probably be about family, church, fishing, music, movies, food, whatever I think of, hopefully it will have some sort of theological reflection (maybe).
