The Princess and the Pea

Or, as there is no pea in my story, I could call this Goldilocks:  this one is too hard, this one is too soft, this one is just right.  

I've been in between apartments for a couple of months.  You know me, I seem to have been hunting for an apartment for years.  When I had an apartment, I wanted a better apartment.  Now that I don't have one, I'm on the hunt for the perfect one because I don't want to move into a place, only to dream of a better apartment.

While I'm in between apartments, I have been utilizing a little-known gem called AirBnb.  People rent a room out of their apartment or house, sometimes they rent out the whole place.  

I stayed in one place for awhile.  The bedroom had a futon.  It was hard as a rock, and rickety at that.  I don't know much about futons.  I don't understand futons.  They aren't the best sofa.  They aren't the best bed.  To me, if you can have only one or the other, you should have the best of either, but not the worst of both, which is the definition of a futon.  

I just moved into my second place.  It has the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on.  It's a dream.  It's perfect.  I love it.  I hit snooze this morning for 40 minutes because I didn't want it to end.  

I decided I needed to track down this mattress.  I took pictures of the tags and luckily for me, the name of the place where it was purchased was on one of those tags.  I went there today and asked them if they could tell me which would be the comparable model today.  They could.  They did.  They showed me two.  The second one was THE ONE.  I intend to get that mattress when I get my apartment. I cannot imagine a better state of well-being than having a perfect night's sleep every single night.  

It just proves that there is a reason for everything.  If it wasn't for this detour on my journey, I wouldn't have known this mattress existed.  I never would have bought such a soft mattress because I'd have thought I would have awakened every morning in pain.  But on the contrary, it's heaven!

Sigh.  I'm so glad to know that I don't have to settle, that there truly is a mattress out there for everyone.  ;)
