The Groupon Guide to: Building a Fort in Your Apartment

Hey, just because you’re an adult doesn’t mean you can’t have some good, old-fashioned fun. Ignore the fact that your grandfather had already fought in a war and fathered two children and gotten three promotions by your age and enjoy these tips for building a fort in your apartment:

• Clear out some space for the fort that you, an adult, are building. This means clearing away the any of the following instruments from the common room: replica Paul McCartney Hofner bass, ukulele, Professor Learning’s Toddler Xylophone, three theremins, and $1,500 Moog synthesizer that no one could figure out.

• You’re going to need some bedding. There should be a pile of it on your mattress, which is on the floor and not a bed frame.

• Get permission to co-opt the space with a fun, fun fort. Since you live with fellow cool people and not a family, it should not be a problem.

• Drape some blankets over a lamp or stick. Do this instead of updating your resumé or working on the painting you started 11 months ago when you heard your calling.

• Put a picture of the fort on the Internet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
