In anticipation of downsizing to a one bedroom, I decided it is time to get out of my beloved loft bed. I mean, should a homeowner sleep in bunkbeds? Probably not. It is fine for a renter, but for a homeowner? No.
So I found an ad on Craigslist earlier this week and went to check it out today. Yep. It is indeed a bed from Ikea with a mattress. But you can’t buy a bed if you don’t lie in it, so at noon on a Friday at a stranger’s apartment, I tried out his bed. It was kind of funny in a Seinfeld sort of way–I imagine if it was Seinfeld, his girlfriend would have walked in and I would have been trying out the bed more seriously. Curled up in the fetal position or something.
But my life is not always a sitcom and nothing hilarious happened. I wrote a deposit check and agreed to pay $200 for the bed. I’ll go back on Purim to pick it up.
