Umm…You’ll Never Guess What Your Lawn Furniture Might Say About You!

Now that the weather seems to be finally turning nicer, it’s time to dust off the patio and lawn chairs, and get ready for summer. I don’t know about you, but after the unbelievable amount of rain, I know I am ready for a little sunshine. As I take my furniture out of storage wipe off the pollen and get ready to sit down with a cool cocktail, I ponder, where I will be placing my outdoor furniture?

This past weekend, the subject came up about outdoor furniture, more specifically Adirondack chairs. My friend mentioned, “Did you know that two Adirondack chairs on your front lawn indicate …that you are a swinger? WHAT?!?!? I, for one, had no idea. Now, I know this is all rumor but is there any truth to it at all?

Balloons tied to a mailbox most definitely would indicate a birthday party. And back in the 70s, everyone talked about rumors of key parties. Do the Adirondack chairs mean swinger? After a quick Google search, and a look through Snopes, it seems the rumor can’t be confirmed or denied. Not only that apparently there are many other signs than the Adirondack chairs. The Internet seems to be abuzz with all sorts of signs, from white rocks around your mailbox, flamingos, and perhaps pineapple door knockers. Really?

This past Sunday, May 11th, there was an article in The New York Times posing the question, “Is An Open Marriage A Happier Marriage”? I don’t know if it was my post swinger conversation, that had me wondering what’s with all the modern day marriage talk, and while we certainly aren’t 1950’s housewives anymore, are we really that progressive?

I know we suburban moms certainly may have some mid-life complacency. We volunteer for the PTO, carpool our children all over town, sit in our book clubs, and bake for countless bake sales. While we do all this with a smile, I am sure there are those among us who may yearn for the more carefree days, and I am not one to judge anyone’s choices.

So as I drive around town, taking my kids where they need to go, and running my errands, I can’t help but look around and wonder, hmmm…
