Ikea Builds Relationships

The Swedes have posed us quite the puzzle in this bed frame. We've been struggling for hours to put it together like a Lego set (another nordic creation), proceeding deliberately and carefully through the 40-step directions, making sure everything is tight, everything is lined up.

We screw the final parts of the frame together, each of us working on his or her side, back to back, and I lean back to spoon Katie while I tighten one more bolt. She sighs, and even though I'm tired, I'm so very happy we work so well together.
