Vertically-Disadvantaged Advantages

We bought a new mattress about 3 months ago. It's a King Size bed with the foam top. It wasn't one night until we realized this bed had it's quirks, just like the old one. Body Indents. Big Kirk sized ones. The bed just kind of swallows you and give you a big polyurethane hug. That's okay if you're always a back sleeper-which we try to be- but often find the belly position with the crumpled-up snuggle pillow a bit too tempting. So we are faced with a great dilemma. Become exclusively back sleepers or get another bank account-draining mattress. Unless there's another way....



I am 5'7" on a good day. My feet comfortably reach my motorcycle pegs if I wear my thick-heeled boots. I look for Levi's that are freakishly labelled with as short a leg as possible. Usually a 29". So I am slightly inseam-challenged...we all have our challenges. My wife is 5'3". You can see where I am headed with this can't you?



So we started sleeping sideways on the new mattress. It's 6 inches shorter but 6 inches wider. Feet don't hang off and I could drop a boat load of bowling balls from unmentionable heights without waking my sweetheart-she's 9 feet away! And no idents! It's a mattress-manufacturing conspiracy. They are in bed with the chiropractors.

Yes, I agree, there are definite advantages. That's a good one. Short people can fit on any bed. Also, we can fit in cars and airplanes better...and we're the last to know when it rains.
