my friend has one of those chairs that you see in the bottom right square of my StyleFeeder. She doesn't let anyone else sit in it. When my other friend and I are over at her house and the chair-owning friend goes to the store, we sit in it.
We sit and sit and sit and giggle. We lean back, we lean forward. We don't abuse the chair; we simply use the chair.
She doesn't know it. DON'T tell her because my chair-sitting friend told me she saw it this week and it has a rip in it! I swear I didn't do it. She swears she didn't do it. We think the raccoon did it--he comes at night.
