SRS, are you doing all this moving of large furniture by yourself? I know you have plenty of experience, and you obviously know how to do it safely, but shit happens even to the experienced and the careful.

Just sayin'.

Of course, I move bookcases on my own, too, much to Himself's dismay. I know I shouldn't and I do it anyway because I hate asking him because then I would have to explain not only what I want to do but also why I want to do it, and then convince him that it's a good idea, all of which is a lot of rhetorical work. (Note: none of our ceilings has collapsed.) It feels easier just to do it myself and take the risk. But I'm not as strong as I used to be, and one of these days I'll go down under a bookcase if I persist.
