Since it’s the Magical Season where we are suppose to be cheerful and joyous, Randy is being saved from being a victim on a 48 Hours episode!
The story begins like this….
Once Upon a Time there was a husband named Randy. Because his wife Trudy had been having some hip and leg pain, and the pain was worse at night when she slept (or tried to sleep but could not because her leg hurt so badly) he shared that maybe it was time for them to buy a new mattress! Well, Princess Bakesalot spoke up and said “what if we buy a new mattress and find out that the pain is still bad and we spent all that money for nothing, when I could have had a brand new sparkly new￼crown”. Mr. I Have a Great Idea says ,
” I know, let’s switch out our king mattress for the newer more firm Queen mattress that is in the guest room before we go buy a new one! That way we can see if having a better mattress will help you before we waste money on a new one!”
Well, Princess Bakesalot agreed that indeed they should try it. After all. how hard could it be? So working together they decided to drag the queen mattress from the guest room to the master bedroom and would just put the queen mattress on top of the king mattress so they wouldn’t have drag the king mattress￼￼ to the other room. Since all the elves were off￼ on holiday from being so tired￼￼ from Christmas, the couple decided that they still had it in them to make this change! As they discovered, the queen mattress did not have any handles on the sides to help hold or guide it! Mr IHAGI told the Princess if she could just walk backwards holding onto the end￼ to guide it, he would be at the other end to push! All was well until they tried to hoist it over the footboard and knocked over a lamp and desk accessories! As the mattress finally cleared the footboard, the Princess￼￼ fell backwards onto the floor with the mattress on top of her! She proudly picked herself up and￼ declared that she was fine and they proceeded down the hallway. Upon arriving in the master bedroom, once again trying to hoist it￼ now over the king foot￼board, they discovered that there was no way on Gods Green Earth that either of them would be able to climb into bed without the use of a 8′ ladder￼￼ or a￼￼ cannon to shoot them onto it! So at this point they felt that they now needed to lean the queen mattress over to the wall and remove the king mattress￼ so they could put the queen mattress on the box springs! At least with a good r￼unning, start they might be able to get up on this “higher than they were use to” mattress! the king mattress had handles that allowed them to grab onto to hustle it over the footboard￼ since there was not enough room to move it to the side! After as much breath that it took to”huff and puff to blow your house down” the￼ king mattress was now off the box springs and covered the doorway to the bathroom! But alas, the couple decided that at this point it was easier to walk down the hall to the guest bathroom than to try to move the king size mattress! This is how it will stay until we move￼ in 3 weeks! Neither Mr IHAGI or Princess Bakesalot have the energy to change￼ it again!
The moral of the story is this….
Go to a mattress store that allows you To buy mattress with a 30￼ day return policy and be sure to have lots of ice￼ to put on your hip, your leg and your foot￼ if you attempt this terrible ordeal!
Am hoping the sweeping goes down enough in my foot that will allow me to walk to the bedroom tonight to try out the new mattress!
Also, if you’re wondering why Mr IHAGI and Princess Bakesalot did not just sleep in the guest bedroom the answer is very simple. The Princess is afraid of lizards and a month ago a lizard was spotted in that bedroom which was never found! The End!
