In a way beanbags are like chameleons, jesters and liars.

Beanbags are very comfortable as furniture. They take the shape you want it to take, and fill in the gaps you leave. A true well-wisher; with no evil intensions.

Was wondering if it was this characteristic that made beanbags so popular. Or have I been made to believe so by the counter salesmen? I would never know. Anyways…

In the pre-evolutionary era, chameleons were the king. Then, the times were as bad as it is now – anybody who was somebody was looking to bite the other. Only the chameleons could change their color and escape. Agreed, they were never knighted and there never ran any royal blood in their veins, but on survival instincts alone, it could be named King.

The same could be said of court jesters. In a way they were Kings too. Kings of survival. They assumed the shapes and sizes that their kings liked. If the king (or in some cases the queen) wanted one to be a gymnast, the jester became one. Those that did not bend, roll over and/or pretend were left to rue their decision.

The same is the case with today`s corporate liars. Roti, Kapda aur makaan are no longer the basic requirements. Now, one also craves for the luxuries like.. beanbags, for example. With so much at stake, life in a corporate is full of deceit, trickery & treachery. And why not?

To cut the long story short, if you want to own a beanbag, become one. I became, and today am the proud owner of two!
