Suasoria (who I've been calling Susoria for a good three years now and who may or may not be this person) used a hot vocab word in her (his?) comment about my couch. Antimacassars. That's both a once-ubiquitous hair oil and the prophylactic bit of fabric used to protect chairs and sofas from your grubby little hands. My sofa does indeed still have hers. One of them is quite dirty, however.
