    No, We Don’t Need A New Bed

    Last night Her decided that it was cold enough to start using the electric blanket. I helped her get everything setup so that we could enjoy a toasty night’s sleep. While setting up, we remembered something pretty funny (to us) about living together a few years ago.

    “Hey, do you remember when we wanted to buy a new mattress?” I asked.

    “Yeah,” she replied. “We wanted a new one because we didn’t fit in the bed-”

    “-and we fell through the mattress frame a few times,” I finished, while pressing down on the bed.

    Her frowned. “Oh yeah, I remember that. Why didn’t we end up buying a new bed?”

    “We lost 80 pounds between the two of us in the last two years,” I said, rubbing my flatter belly. “Now we fit.”

    Her’s eyes widened. “We lost a schoolchild’s worth of fat!”

    “I EAT CHILDREN! PUT SCHOOLCHILDREN IN MY BELLY!”

    This is how we decided that we could get by with a full sized bed for a few more years.
