Palanquin purchase?

Well, expateek spent a lovely few days in Vienna, and whilst there pottering about in various Viennese museums, pondered her imminent repatriation to the USA.

Naturally, her thoughts ran toward how she could make a splash upon her re-entry to Chicago society, and she decided that the best thing might be to acquire and utilise an unusual form of transportation.

As she wandered through MUMOK, the Museum of Contemporary Art, she came upon the perfect, the very perfect, thing.

It offers relaxing privacy for the rider, and at the same time it's rather spectacular. The only difficulty may be finding four man-slaves willing to tote expateek around town.

Of all the people I know in this world, Miss Ellie, you are by far the most likely to acquire four man-slaves! It'll be a cinch...

Why, thank you, darling! I'll be in Berkshire by Feb 8; if you like I'll swing by yours and you can interview for one of the spots! I know you're fit, probably just availability might be problematic... xx

Very funny! Love the chair although it looks pretty small!

I have the funny feeling I am well out of the age bracket in which you'll be recruiting. But Chicago is my home town so perhaps I could be a tour guide of sorts!

Hey! Hey lady! If I'm going to read this thing everyday, you better keep it up-to-date! It's not like your four kids are LIVING with you.. What could possibly prevent you from keeping my daily ten minutes allotted to blog reading entertained?
