seam |sēm|
1 a line along which two pieces of fabric are sewn together in a garment or other article.

Every weekend my home dons a flamboyant hat. It puts on a song from the eighties and showers itself in a confetti of worn garments, empty champagne bottles and an assortment of picnic accessories. It dances about merrily with its arms in the air, wine overflowing delicate glasses with a comforting plop on the carpet. On Saturday it wakes up slowly at noon but gets up quickly to twirl about in its dotted underpants, laughing with its mouth all the way into a wide open waltz so I can see right into its throat of feather boas.

On a Monday morning it staggers slightly while pulling itself together at the seams before focusing a red, red eye on the contents of its inhabitant.
