It was amusing in retrospect. It got a bit heated during the session. I didn't realize until afterwards that what we had been discussing with such energy was utterly ridiculous because I really didn't even believe what I was saying.

I was thinking about the sofa. He looked so sad, poor thing, because apparently I wasn't the first to not like it. Only one client had taken advantage of the curling up without shoes offer. More people than that had said it was too soft and too hard to get out of. I imagine it must be really difficult for older clients. I'm thinking that part of the problem my be the large number of cushions. In his regular office, I move the cushions to the side as I sit down. I tease him that it must be fun to watch his clients come in and move the pillows as if they're marking the territory. I didn't feel comfortable enough yet to move the cushions in that office. I did try to make him feel better, and even offered the fact that the therapist on In Treatment had a throw on the sofa for clients to wrap themselves in, if he was wanting that sort of thing.

We didn't talk much about the new office other than that. We talked about a decision I had to make.
