    Why not want a slip-n-slide? You might need the wide body version.

    I had a super permed ratted hair too. I sure don’t want that again.

    Earl be careful, you may not be able to get out of it. Never had one, never wanted one.

    Is Earl going to have difficulty getting out of the beanbag chair once he sits therein?

    When my dad was in his late 50s, he was troubled by a bad back (slipped disk, though not enough for surgery). My fiancee and I were living in Houston… and we bought a couple of giant bags of polystyrene beads and sewed up a bean bag chair for him, which we delivered at Christmas. He used it regularly until his death about 20 years later. Though my mother did have to replace the bag material at least once.

    This summer at a Winnipeg flea market building, I saw this really neat looking bean bag chair, styled to look like a cookie. $5! Thinking about it, I checked the material tag as it had this neat crinkly sound. After looking up polyurethane foam on my phone…

    (a followup shouldn’t be necessary, I found something about releasing toxic gas…)

    I hope he’s not going to sit in it naked and eat potato chips. I don’t have any more eye bleach.

    I think these two are older than I am, and I had a Slip and Slide back in the early 60’s. If they were kids in the 70s, they would be in their early 50s….and I imagine they are in their 70s.

    If you can sit in a beanbag chair on your own, you have to get out and up on your own.

    Beanbag chairs are for the young, agile, athletic and children. Mature adults and old people should avoid them.

    I had lots of things in the 70s that I really miss; my hair, my teeth, uncorrected vision, unaided hearing . . . But I saw all the really good bands! (Which might explain some of the hearing loss . . .)

    A good idea for getting rid of excess beans to guys who stocked them. Not a good idea for buyers or for recycling, which is where most of them ended up.

    False equivalency here, Opal. A beanbag chair is comfortable. A Slip-n-Slide isn’t made for comfort. In any case, an unfunny punch line.

    there is no graceful way to get out of a beanbag chair… and at my age getting out at all is nigh on impossible.

    We have a Slip-N-Slide.

    Of course, we also have grandkids (some of whom do have beanbag chairs – and Lava Lamps®.

    We just spent a couple weeks sleeping in the 6-year-old’s room; used the Lava Lamp® as a nightlight, and I have to say, they are just as groovy now as they were the first time around.

    And I’m sure the beanbag is just as comfy; I am, however, equally sure that I would never get up out of it now………

    At my age (71) I can remember back when I was young that getting out of a beanbag chair was not easy which is why I would never attempt to sit in one now
