Why put together one large IKEA bookshelf when you can assemble four of them? Luckily, WildDog was on hand to supervise.

Three more? You're kidding me.

Three more? You’re kidding me.

When you’ve got a massive book storage problem, the only solution is to go to IKEA, right? And while you’re there, you really should spend 2 hours wandering the Swedish jungle only to select something that is being discontinued, right? And since you’re already going for the discontinued stuff, you want to be sure to get your heart set on something that’s out of stock. Because, it just wouldn’t be right for you to miss out on the experience of going back to IKEA early the next morning to get into fisticuffs with determined soccer moms over three rectangular boxes chock full of “assembly required.”

I mean, if you’re going to do IKEA, you’ve got to do it right.

But once we hunted down these sophisticated, European wonders of art and engeneering and drug them by their hair to our cave, at least we had man’s best friend — The Brown — to help us out.

Judging from the look on The Brown’s brown face, I doubt he’ll be wagging his tail the next time hears, “IKEA? Wanna go, boy? Wanna build stuff? Wanna assemble furnature? Go? IKEA?”

He’s not the only one. Next time, I’m not getting in the car to go to IKEA. Even if Sarah promises me a treat.
