The SituationSofa Bed Dead
Joseph can still remember the dress Georgia was wearing the night they met on a blind date. He remembers the Chinese restaurant, the food, and how gracefully Georgia danced. He recalls the feeling of pre-destiny that they would end up together. 66 years later, they're still a blissfully wedded couple, happy as newlyweds. They've experienced their share of conflicts, but have always found a way to compromise and respect each other, no matter who wins or loses. But they do have a problem they've been sitting on for quite some time: their couch.
Georgia desperately wants to buy a new couch for their living room, but Joe feels that at their age (84 and 87), they're simply too old to bother with new furniture. He believes they've led full lives and they simply don't have enough years left to warrant spending the money. And he's worried that it might lead to a whole redecorating movement. "If there's a new couch, there's gonna be new chairs. Then there's gonna be new rugs and new drapes."
DID THE REF MAKE THE RIGHT CALL?
But Georgia has her reasons. "You have to have something new in your life," she explains, "no matter how old you are." She finds the old couch both unattractive and difficult to get in and out of. "I can't get the hell out of this couch," she groans.
The panel is charmed by the older couple: they way they smile at each other, finish each other's sentences, and joke with each other. They consider the dilemma at hand and find the case cut and dried.
"He needs to get her a couch she can get out of," says Kelly.
Demi agrees. "She's going to get her couch either way. He should just do it."
Tom has a practical thought. "If I were their kids, I'd get them a couch that I might want to get back someday." The crowd groans.
Jim wonders why they are trying to save money. "They should go out with a bang," he suggests. "And besides, if he gets her the couch, he might see a little action."
Tom defers the call to Kelly Ripa, who pleasantly explains the verdict to the sweet couple.
"Georgia, everyone in this room believes that you have done your time and that you deserve a new couch. So congratulations, you win."
Joseph and Georgia received a second honeymoon to Hotel Kura Hulanda Spa and Casino. For more information, visit www.kurahulanda.com and www.curacao.com
