While in bed…
Posted by oliviaventura
Last week, I had an interesting experience in bed (mind out of the
gutter, please!) My bed is absolutely gorgeous. See a picture of it here:
I’ve had it for two years, and it’s always been wonderfully comfortable. Until that night last week, at about 4.15 am, when I was jolted awake by a funny noise. I heard nothing else, rolled over, and the noise came again, this time accompanied by the jerking motion of my bed giving way.
I scrambled out of bed – literally, as the mattress was now trapped in the bedframe. What the??? I managed, with a great deal of effort, to pull the (heavy) mattress free. I located the problem, which I won’t go into, and with my sleep fogged mind went about fixing it. Unlike Vee, the heroine of Miss Fix-It, I’m not very handy, so it took me an hour to work everything out. At which point
I had to wrestle the mattress back on, and re-make the bed so I could sneak in a few more hours sleep.
When I woke up, I realized that I could have left the problem for morning and slept on my extremely comfortable couch.
So, my question to you is: what have you done while half asleep that you wouldn’t have done if your brain was fully in gear?
Oh, and have you ever had your bed/chair/couch fall apart on you?
