Nothing like trying to serve salad while on your knees to relax a person…

    You mean every woman doesn’t toss the garden salad while kneeling on the new carpet in front of her husband’s sweaty feet while he takes off his shoes and aerates his toes?

    Love the chair, lighting, and table. Can’t imagine what the stylist was thinking here — maybe he/she had had one too many Southern Comfort Old Fashions?

    Wow, that sure does look relaxing … for him. Her, not so much. I have clearly watched too much Mad Men, as any mention of an Old Fashioned makes me think of Don Draper!

    And just how are we supposed to eat the salad – there are no plates or forks to be seen. Or perhaps it has a deeper meaning….???

    Maybe she was drinking all day and just can’t get up. 😉

    why does she have to have a salad in front of her? Why can’t she be relaxing with him? I think Tiara Bunny may be right about a deeper meaning for the salad tossing forks there.
