Firm, back loving bliss . . .
That is the only way I can describe it. Not only did I get a new mattress, but a new frame too. At 6:30 pm I decided to stretch out diagonal on my new mattress (does anyone listen to phish?) and regained consciousness at 9:30 pm. The bed is made of two mattresses, but now only one frame supports them. I can not tell you how happy this makes me. No more pebbles and pinches, no depth change in the middle. Even, balanced, firm, sleep. A friend of mine claims that I take jobs based on getting free rent, maybe. But I'm adding to that the importance of a good bed. So to anyone hiring out there, free rent and a Sealy and I'm yours.
And this morning it was raining and every fiber of my being said, "stay, stay, don't leave the sanctuary of white cotton sheets" and luckily I did not have The Life of Pi or I think I would have called into work.
But know tonight Pi, myself, 3 pillows to prop against, an open window with a gentle damp breeze and Vape mosquitoe repellent are going to have a lovely evening together in my little coop of a room. This is what I live for.
Another aside: I'm pimping someone's blog who I don't know (personally), but her take on the new Coke campaign for Tab had me in (slightly enraged) hysterical fits of laughter. Sorry Coke, I know I have stood beside you my entire life, but someone in marketing may need to get canned. Check out Devon's blog: indigitalcircles.com/dcfitzg for more about it. And Devon, if you mind the shout out, let me know.
