We got a new red couch for our apartment despite Philip's concern that an average sized couch would leave no room for his trains.
It turns out there is room for a new couch AND Philip's train set. And as Philip accurately observed while eating beet salad on the new red couch: red is the perfect color because you can eat things like beets and drink red wine on a red couch without the fear of making an obvious stain! The added bonus is that we now have somewhere for people to sit when they come visit. -Rachel
