I use a swivel office chair at the dinner table

Years ago when I saw the movie Witness, I was impressed that the old Amish man used an office chair on wheels to sit at the table. It allowed him to launch and wheel across the kitchen to grab condiments.

I just bought myself an office desk chair on wheels to sit at my table so I can easily turn to the side and use this PC.

What a wonderful, practical idea!

One of the chairs at our kitchen table broke a few years ago so we moved the office chair in and for weeks I loved zipping around the kitchen, sometimes I would pretend to need something just to push off from the table across the kitchen. Now all we need is the office chair on wheels that converts into a recliner.
