I came across this mural while running errands today.
I was reminded of the wily dowager countess' first encounter with one of these chairs.
Arms in the air seeming to fall backwards and grabbing the desk top.
She, of course took advantage of the moment to complain
about the indignity of her daily encounters with Americans.
Records tell me that Thomas Jefferson did have a hand in making an early example of a swiveling chair.
He probably imagined a flying one too but wouldn't have considered such a neck tie.
