nighty night turkle

I have no bed!

My mom's been telling me I need to get a new mattress, as the one I've been sleeping on is around 30 years old. So yesterday we went to a mattress store. My existing mattress is a double, but hardly anybody sells double-size mattresses anymore. They're all queen-size and king-size. So, after trying out a few mattresses, including a Tempur-Pedic and a Sleep Number, I decided I wanted a Tempur-Pedic. So we bought a whole Tempur-Pedic bed, and I went home to clear a path to my bed.

Today I finished clearing a path, and dismantled and removed the old bed, and vacuumed. Currently, I have no bed! The workers should be here sometime between 4 and 7 today to deliver and assemble my new bed.

Then tomorrow I wanna go see "Surf's Up".

"Oh," said Goldilocks, "this bed is too thick."


Shortly after 4:00, the deliverers came with my new bed. They set it up in my room, and... it was too thick.

See, at the store, the salesman showed us the Tempur-Pedic beds, and there was one with a thick mattress (15") and one with a thin mattress (about 8"). When I sat up on the thick mattress, my feet didn't touch the floor, so I opted for the thin mattress.

But now they've delivered the wrong one and my feet don't touch the floor and I can tell I'm not going to be able to see the clock on my bedtable when I'm lying down! I gotta call Mattress Firm and get this straightened out.

I'll bet those damn deliverers put a pea under this thing, too. I HATE it when they do that!
