I mentioned we got a new bed….
Did I mention we got an Ergo-motion bed??
With controls that raise the head or foot of the bed or BOTH?? Like a hospital bed?? (but without rails so Hubs is no safer from hitting the floor when I kick him out. Major oversight on his part. Heh eh eh!)
Well we did. We had a nice normal mattress/box springs set picked out after laying on about 15 different ones for extended periods of time, turning this way and that and generally flopping about like fishes outta water. Cuz we’re this many *holds up 4 fingers*….
The store only had one sales dude on duty so while we waited for him to finish up with another couple we goofed off on the beds we A) knew we couldn’t afford, or B) knew we didn’t want. I said to my Hubs in jest “Why don’t you go try that hospital type too while you’re at it”….He did. And that’s when the sales dude found us….
Sales Dude: Sir let me demonstrate for you. First, lets make the bed totally flat.
Hubs: Okey dokey.
Sales Dude: Now Sir, take a deep breath and slowly exhale while I raise the foot of the bed slightly….
Sales Dude: Did you feel the pressure relief in your lower back?
Hubs: Yep, we’ll take it!
And so we did, with the mattress we’d original picked out to go on top of the magical frame. It got delivered Monday and that night we went to bed early, motivated by the thrill of a new “toy” and the promise of a sweet nights restful sleep and the benefits that accompany it….
Perhaps we should have hired the Sales Dude to come work the controls and tuck us in…..instead Hubs took charge and well…..
Does this look comfy to you??? No?? You are correct, it wasn’t.
We fell asleep with both the head and the foot elevated and woke up this morning with raging effin’ backaches. Dammit.
Now I get to be in charge of the bed remote.
