That’s right, it doesn’t matter.
It might to someone else, but it sure doesn’t make a difference.
Of course, I’m talking about the size of mattresses.
I had a couple days off this week, where I was able to go and see a good friend and my parents all in the same trip.
Well, I slept in three different places in three nights. And each time, I was on a different sized bed.
The first night, I was at my friend’s place. He is a former college roommate, and a great friend. I was fortunate this past week. I have been able to see two of my best friends — within two days. I hadn’t seen either of them since last fall, so it was great to catch up.
After a weekend with Mark, I traveled to Scott’s on Monday night.
Scott lives in Ely, Iowa. Which is odd, I have now been in two different towns called Ely — in two different states. Scott and his wife, Erin, recently built a new house. Fortunately, they have a guest room. So I was able to have my own room.
In that room was a queen bed.
That was Night 1.
The second night was at my parents’ place.
I hadn’t been to their house since Christmas, so I figured it was time to head back that way. I was able to get some good home cooking, do some laundry and even play some golf. Dad and I have played more rounds of golf than I can count, but each time is just a blast. It was the first time on the course for either of us this season. I finished with a 39 (on a par 35), so I was pretty happy about that. Of course, on the first hole, my dad chips one in from the rough just off the green.
Since I moved out of my parents house in the summer of 2007, my room has drastically changed. All that’s left is a few of my personal items and a single bed.
So Night 2 was spent in a single bed.
That moves me until last night. I returned home late Wednesday night.
It didn’t take me too long to get into my own bed.
So Night 3 was spent in my own bed — which is a double. Because of the stairs leading into my apartment, I can’t fit anything bigger than a double. So, I’ve learned to love my double bed.
In three nights, I slept in a queen bed, a single bed and a double bed.
Three nights, three different sizes.
And no, size didn’t matter.
I slept just as well in each bed. Each bed works just as well, no matter what the size.
