If this doesn't scream "old", I don't know what does

I am now the proud owner of a Craftmatic Adjustable Bed.

Duuuuuuuuudes.

I can explain!

I'd been looking for a bed for the spare bedroom since I moved in last summer. At first, I was going to put a full-sized bed in there, and I even bought a full-size bed frame, see?:



Is pretty, no? Twenty bucks at the thrift store. Win!

But the more I got to thinking about it, the less sense it make to put a full-size bed in there, the main reason being that I have overnight guests approximately once every kabillion years. The room isn't that huge to begin with, so I decided to go with a twin-size bed. If I get more than one person sleeping over, somebody's going to Sofa City, is all.

Enter a guy at work, who was cleaning out a deceased relative's house, and wanted to unload a twin-size Craftmatic Adjustable Bed that had only been used a few times.

Score!

Just call me Gramma.

Oh! And did you know that Craftmatic Adjustable Beds are fun? The head-part goes up! The foot-part goes up! You can do both at once and be all pretzel-y!

GodDAM, I'm old.

But it's not for you! It's the guest bed. You can make your guests feel old :-)

Sofa City--Sixteen Candles reference or is that a common expression I don't know about?

The deceased didn't become deceased while occupying said bed, did he/she? Or was this something you didn't inquire about ... on purpose?

Oh, no, she died in a hospital upstate - I'm quite sure of it.

Although I'm not averse to sleeping in "dead beds" - I slept in my Dad's bed the night after he died in it - THERE'S a story for another day.

Ahhh. Something you young folks don't know but we old folks do - Craftmatic beds are very good for something else, having nothing to do with sleeping.

In that case, it's just as well it's in the guest room.
