You’re the Achilles Heel of mine, my Death Star weakness. My own Brokeback Mountain. You are a huge portion of that void I was attempting to seal again in Calgary. What together with your good Scandinavian lines, your frugal-meets-practical fashionability, and of course, your come hither As Is section. You are simple to give in to.

You made sense. In a time wasting, material accumulating way type.

I thought I was over you, and far from your icy tight Allen wrench grip when I escaped the cubicle of mine. But no, you’d other plans. They state that payback is a recipe best served cool. I didn’t realize it also meant served in a wasteland Gulf city-state also.

IKEA Dubai, you have me.

The fact is, I was the person which came skulking to you. Sadly, Oman doesn’t get an IKEA. Surprisingly, Saudi Arabia has 3 of them (but no females in the Saudi edition of the IKEA catalogue.) Since many other 50 % and I’d a four bedroom apartment to seal, so we did not really wish furniture that seemed like this

or perhaps this

there was very little alternative. So it was off to IKEA in Dubai’s Festival City we went. Wishing for a much better, much more unusual dalliance with my former weakness.entrance to IKEA Dubai, looking in Dubai, UAE

Nevertheless, we managed to walk away with over in cheaply produced, practical furnishings? including lamps, a kitchen table and chairs, a table, along with a closet. And unfortunately, the sour flavor of chicken dog.
