A Sleep-Well Deal
The week started quietly enough with us splurging on a replacement for our king-sized bed. After twenty years the mattress had developed a noticeable sag on my end , a sag which is absent on her side of the bed. Yes, I carry a few more pounds than I did when we bought the Cal-King, but that shouldn’t have made a difference. Harrumph, American products just don’t last like they used to.
The new bed has controls that allow us to raise and lower the head and foot sections. The mattress has an air pump that adjusts its firmness.
We rationalized the purchase on the basis that we spend one third of our lives in bed. All I need is a microwave, a fridge, and a widescreen TV, and there will be no reason to go downstairs at all. © 2007 Stephen Yuen
