There’s not much that Z and I disagree on. However, there is one BIGGIE! That happens to be mattresses/beds! Z says that there is only good bed and that is a WATER BED! He doesn’t know that they don’t sell water beds anymore. Oh, maybe you can find a used one, but there are no more water bed companies! Thank goodness!!!
I let him have his way with his old water bed for years. Every night, I would hold on for my life, when he HIT THE BED! It was like a mini title wave when he flopped down. Too, I never got the knack of how to get in and out of a water bed. Then changing sheets was like wrestling an alligator. You had to burp it, too! Heavens forbid, when it would spring a leak!
I order us a Sleep number bed! He looked at it and started complaining! He put his on the softest number and I had mine on the firm number. For the price of that bed and for all the fuss that Z was giving me! Thus, having a lop sided bed that cost that much, we sent it back!!!!!! Getting that bed in the boxes it came in was an act that I will never go through again.
Yep, back to the WATER BED. Until 2007, when I got a REGULAR bed. The kind with a box springs and a regular mattress. He never forgave me for getting it and giving away his WATER BED. He fussed every morning, about how it hurt his back and neck and he didn’t sleep good. Well after seven years of his mattress grumbling, I got a memory foam mattress! I really love it and I’ve learned that, YOU CAN’T PLEASE EVERYONE ALL THE TIME (and with Z, you just can’t please him at all!!!)!
