Aah, the great Indian toofer..Is their anything greater than the 2-in-1 sofa? Yunything yatall I say?

The SCB occupies the pride of place in the hall. It sits there all by itself in majestic rexin-covered splendor just waiting to be converted at the drop of a handle.
Never mind that the seam between the seat and the backrest is as high as a speed-bump and is the #1 reason for spondylitis among elder engles
Never mind that the backrest sits at an angle of 10 degrees to the other half even when unfolded fully.
Nevermind...oh never mind...
The fact that your son-in-law/damad/mapillai can snore for 3 hours - lungi-clad limbs all akimbo - in the afternoon and still claim that he took only a small nap simbly because he did not sleep in the bedroom? - priceless


Engle (to son-in-law): simbly lie down on sofa-cum-bed i say. You will sleep like anything
