Ah, there's nothing like sitting on the couch and feeling that sharp, rigid plastic cover.
It was the classic feel (and sound) of most grandparents' houses. Every time you sat down, you would have to assure everyone that it was not, in fact, you that farted...but rather the couch.
There's really no solid reason as to why these furniture covers were everywhere. Obviously people wanted to keep their furniture clean and looking fresh, but this was a little extreme.
God forbid it was summer and you sat on one of these while wearing shorts! That was a painful peel off the couch.
Did your house (or your grandparents' house) have these furniture covers? Mine did!
