Joy in Cozy House

14 Nov

They gazed at the soft, perfectly-formed bundle lying on the bed, so new to the world.

They smiled. They cooed. Bringing it home was the best thing they’d done.

They held hands and lay down, staring up at the ceiling in thrill and anticipation.

And that, my friends, is how the Tempurpedic mattress came home.

    I guessed pillow. How can a mattress be bundled, ye Gods? 😛

    The first two lines said ‘puppy’
    The third, something naughty
    The fourth revealed
    And then i pealed
    Only OJ could rhapsodize a ‘godri’!

    Aunty G: Some godhris can be bliss
    Others, hit or miss
    I’d prefer to keep
    The one that helps me sleep
    And preferably has no piss

    Having slept on my share of uncomfortable mattresses, I understand perfectly well the need for an ode to the humble mattress. I hope “she” continues to provide many years of wonderful slumber and even better dreams.

    chaipakoraandgupshup: This was fiction. 🙂 We already have a stellar mattress that brings us nightly joy.

Here's a bar of chocolate. Now talk to me. :)
