Tennis Ball Stuck Under Couch Lost Forever
BOSTON, MA - Gustavo, a neighborhood dog, has confirmed the tennis ball under the couch in the living room of his home is stuck there forever.
“One minute it was here and the next it was gone.” stated Gustavo. “I had it for 45 seconds and it was the best time of my life. Now it’s gone and I know I’ll never ever get to see it again.”
Although Gustavo can see the tennis ball under the couch, he knows it’s not coming back, as evidenced by the adjacent loose potato chip.
“Stuff rolls under there all the time,” began his owner, Beth Margon. “I treat it like a black hole in the living room. Once something slides under that couch, it’s gone forever. Consider it a gift to the next owner, if we even take the couch. It might just stay there until it disintegrates.”
Gustavo attempted to burrow under the couch to get to it, but the couch proved too heavy to lift.
“I thought maybe if I wedged my face between the couch and the floor, like I always do with doors, I could get in there,” he added. “Though I should have known it wouldn’t work, since it doesn’t work with doors either.”
Gustavo quickly forgot the tennis ball was even under there within moments however, as Beth returned home with a new three-pack of balls, along with some treats.
