Musical air mattresses

June 4th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Air mattresses and my body apparently aren’t made for each other.

I tried my third air mattress in seven nights last night. It was inflated and fairly comfortable until about 2:30 this morning. Then it felt like I was sleeping on a noisy, deflated innertube.

I think I must be getting the air mattresses from the church’s “Needs to be patched” pile in the storeroom. But there’s no sign warning that they are in need of repair.

Tonight — our last in Greensburg, I plan to inflate two or three before bedtime and place them strategically in the Sunday school classroom where some of us are sleeping, That way, when one loses air, I can move to the next.

Like everyone else in class, I’m looking forward to returning to my bed.
