the other day i decided to go to the sacred ground where my new personal ikea store is being built. it is a heavenly place. it nearly glows with potential wonder and delight. it will contain things of smart design and furniture in flat boxes. of swedish meatballs and lingonberry sauce. of lovely saturated hues and indirect lighting.

the building is nearly built, the access road is paved. it is real. it's really, real.

they are building it and i will come. and i will smile like a stupid fool. because ikea is eye candy.

mr. ntm and the pb kid are sure i will be but a faint memory once the store is opened. but i'm thinking that i will see them again.
