Super Strength: well, maybe not really

Yesterday as we were coming back from Trader Joe's, B in the stroller and E on her bike, we passed by the MIT furniture exchange. It's a place you can donate or buy furniture and other household items if you're an MIT student looking to furnish a place for cheap. There was a truck just pulling in and we decided to watch it back up to the loading dock. As this was happening, I explained how backing up to a loading dock like that makes it easy to carry items into the building.

Elizabeth asked, "Mommy, how do they carry a couch in? Do two people have to help carry it?"

"Yep," I answered.

"I could probably pick up a couch all by myself," she responded, followed quickly by, "Well, maybe a small chair... ."
