|This is the coveted spot on the couch.|
The new couch is excellent, and there is certainly no going back to the bad old days of a too-small couch.
Still, this new couch was purchased with the thought that placement upon it would matter not -- everyone would be comfortable. This is true to an extent, but owing to cosmic forces, feng shui, particle physics, and general craziness, "couch corner" is still a thing.
This means that the primo spot for watching TV or playing Xbox is the corner nearest the wall.
I realize that purchasing couches is like purchasing weapons, one is always hungry for more, better, bigger. I will resist the temptation to "go nuclear," which would be to turn every flat space into a couch-like place. We still need the table!
