Mama Deb

We have committed bed

We've known we needed new beds for, oh, a long time now. These beds were a wedding present, after all, and we've been married almost 17 years. So, it's way past time. I can feel the springs sproing, you know?

And about a month ago, more or less, we decided to finally get them. Except I was sick that Sunday, so we didn't go. And then we had a luncheon the following Sunday, so we didn't go, and then we went to Arisia. But we had nothing brewing this Sunday, so, bright and early (4PM) we got out of the house and went to a local Sleepys.

Where we had a delightful saleswoman who is mistress of the soft sell. A year ago, when we tried the same thing, we went to a different store and got a hard sell and left with nothing. Hard sell doesn't work with us.

Soft sell does. So, this Thursday we will get a new pair of twin mattress/box spring sets (the frame is in good shape) and they will wrap the old ones and take them away. I am so looking forward to a bed that doesn't sag.


I wish I'd known the man - he was always simply a face in the filkcircle to me, and I'm sorry for that.

To all my friends who did know and now mourn Greg McMullen, I can only give my sympathy for their loss and pain. I am very sorry for the loss you all have taken this weekend.
