My favorite piperisms are delivered when I least expect them and need them the most. Today I was whining about a $99 delivery fee Ikea wants to charge even though they are only twelve miles from my house. Don’t they understand that twelve miles in traffic on the beltway could take hours? And that’s only if I drive it between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. Poor me. From the backseat Piper said, “Ikea is so much better than the White House. Wanta know why? Because Ikea lets you sit on their stuff. You can climb all over the furniture and they don’t care. That White House is stingy.” True. That does put it all in perspective.
