Apropos of Nothing....

When you buy a new desh for your office, and it's one of those "Put it together yourself" jobs that come in two big, heavy, long flat boxes, and you have ordered the model in cherry wood because that's the wood you like and that's what the other people with offices have, you will generally find it good practice to actually crack open the box and confirm that the desk the furniture place has shipped to you actually is cherry wood before you pull everything out of your office and pile it all in the office corridor. Waiting to do so until after you've emptied your office is a tempting of fate that is not unlike dangling a bit of string before the eyes of a wakeful kitten.
