Sleepytime

bed

When I was single, there was a point where I needed a new mattress.  My present one was years old, and I could feel the coils poking into my ribs all night long………making for a very uncomfortable nights sleep.

After much searching I found a luxurious pillow top which promised to cure all my back ailings and keep me sleeping through the night……..best of all, there was a guarantee.  If for any reason I was not satisfied, I could return it, and replace it with any other mattress they had in stock.

Excuse me………….I’m not just another pretty face, here, folks…..This was a win-win situation all the way around.

The store delivered my new mattress, and removed my old one.  I was so excited to finally get a good nights sleep…………

I didn’t.  It was awful.  My back ached worse than it did with my old one.

Back to the store.  I picked out another one.  Maybe I would go with one not as soft as the luxurious pillowtop.  I decided to try a firmer mattress.

Store delivery, and removal of the too soft pillowtop.  Ok, now! Now I’m excited to get a good nights sleep………….

Wrong! I was up all night tossing and turning.  Couldn’t get comfortable. Maybe too firm?  I was starting to get very frustrated as I made my way back to the store…..for the third time!  I don’t think the sales people were starting a fan club for me at this point.

I chose another one I hoped would be the answer to my prayers.

Here we go again.  Delivery and removal.  At this point I was on first name basis with the delivery men.  I was planning on adding them to my Christmas Card list.

As they pulled out of my driveway, it was then I noticed all the neighbor biddys peeking out their windows from behind their curtains.   It then dawned on me what this looked like to all my neighbors…………I could just hear them:

“Oh my Gawd,……..That trampy little Zelzee……….well, lordy, she just wore out her third mattress in less than four months!!!”

It just made me smile………………..

    At least it looked like you were the one having fun. Hope you got your mattress issues sorted. Nothing worse than a terrible night’s sleep.

    I love my bed—-its a firm one with a pillow top, then a memory foam on top of that—so comfy!

    Also—I love my memory foam pillow—I had sore necks until I started using it!

    LOL!! Trampy Zelzee with her big ‘ole trampy earrings and shoes! I love it.

    My parents had a similar experience (but they couldn’t return theirs, so they have 2 guest rooms outfitted with rejected mattresses) and settled with that NASA memory foam thing. They both swear by it.

    Well, Biddies DO need stuff to talk about! That’s how I know my MIL is not drinking (alcohol); the more she gossips about what the neighbors are doing, the more I know she’s at least doing SOMETHING other than drinking alone in front of the TV. (Sorry if that’s TMI!)
