It was three years ago today that we strode with demigod-like confidence through the labyrinth of IKEA in the land of Covina. My son and I. Navigating hazard, and terror, and Swedish furniture… We found our way to the very center, and finding it undefended, we seized the hides of the royal cattle and wrapped them around our broad shoulders. As conquerors. As princes of the earth.
We were kings once. We were kings.
