Queen Sized Bed

Post by munsi » Fri Mar 12, 2010 9:49 am

“Don’t buy a single bed,” he said to me, there in the Ikea.

“A single bed is an admission that you don’t intend to have sex. It says you’ve given up, that you’ll never meet anyone, or connect, ever again, and that you don’t intend to try. Even if you’re alone right now, buy the queen sized bed. It’s a wish. It says you think things might get better.”

I laughed at the time, but I bought the bed.

Now, here in my queen sized bed, watching you sleep, I see how right he was.

I’ll have to thank him.

Oh come on munsi, for crying out loud, this is the Drabblecast. At least you could make it about Norm and a squid.

Aw, it's all shmoopy. Reminds me of a poem I wrote my wife back when we were still dating.

Always be prepared is my motto. I got crap for buying a queen sized bed when it was technically unnecessary, but was very glad i did.

I think you're just trolling for sympathetic women with this story! Nicely done.
You're my quasi-ichthian angel, you're my half-amphibian queen...

The Dribblecast, we don't care if you sound like an idiot.
