Bett gekauft

I'm now the proud owner of a brand-new full-size mattress-spring-frame set, which they've just installed in my bedroom. The thing is practically a cube---the top of it is fully two and a half feet off the floor. (That'd be due to the pillowtop, and for that matter the pillowbottom.) Of course, this is somewhat lower than the seven feet I'm used to sleeping at, so not particularly bothersome in that sense. And it's not as long as I worried about (I'd been measuring from the baseboard and overestimating---the slightly shorter bed up against the wall itself gives me an extra two or three inches) so it doesn't look like I have to climb over the bed to get to the closet. Actually, the room looks like a slightly cramped but fairly normal bedroom at this point....

'Many men grow up so focused on following the job-wife-kids-car-condo achievement pattern that it can be years before they find themselves staring very very hard at one of those Hilfiger's ads and thinking, "It's not really the arresting graphic design that's holding my attention, is it?"' --The Plaid Adder, "The Fine Art of Being Come Out To"
