Turning A King Mattress October 22, 2016Posted by nrhatch in Exercise & Fitness, Home & Garden, Humor, Less IS More.
Last time we stripped the bed to wash the sheets, we decided to fluff up the mattress pad in the dryer.
Once the mattress had been divested of its outerwear, we figured we might as well rotate the mattress.
Once the mattress was off the box springs, we figured we might as well wash the dust ruffle.
At that point, Tigger intervened to check on our progress.
He wandered around the unusual landscape checking things out.
Once Tigger gave us the “all clear,” we figured we might as well lift off the box springs and vacuum under the bed.
Once the box springs were removed, we decided to clean the baseboard and wash the walls behind the bed.
A few observations:
#1 One thing leads to another.
#2 Everything is connected.
#3 King beds are H~E~A~V~Y!!!
When I mentioned the intense work-out we got from our mattress turning session to my sister, she asked an astute question:
“What do people do about flipping king mattresses when they get older?”
Considering the options, I replied:
“You ask your kids to do it. Or you forget to do it. Or like Lucy and Ricky Ricardo, you trade in your King for Twin Beds.”
Of course, by the time BFF & I get around to turning our mattress again, we may all be sleeping in pods on Mars.
Time will tell.
Aah . . . that’s better!
