This is really not of general interest. But I have slept on a sloping mattress for over two years now. And trying to find a comfortable position where I don’t feel like I’m falling down a hill all night is a challenge. According to my pals over at Classic Furniture, the mattress is not the problem. Its the bed. Supposedly we do not have enough middle supports along the frame.
So. This Saturday we dismantled [read: took mattress and boxbrings off] the bed. We eventually made it to Lowes where Wes remembered that he forgot to measure the bed. Then we went home and carried on. Then we went up to the shop and forgot to bring the board. And then we went home and forgot to bring the saw.
I am now sleeping on my entire collection of Harry Potter books.
A little ‘wingardium leviosa’ is taking place because I’m sleeping much more levelly. I chuckled over this a bit and then remarked to Wesley that I felt a bit like the princess and the pea. And I received a blank stare and a ‘huh?’ In astonished tones, I exclaimed, ‘Wesley, you don’t know about the princess and the pea?!’ And he didn’t.
And then I remembered that this was pretty much his childhood.
So I said, ‘Never mind.’
