Sometime before Christmas last year, Mike and I were introduced to the “iComfort sleep system” It’s a beautiful memory foam mattress on an adjustable bed frame with a massage function. It was at the end of a long day of Christmas shopping that we found this miraculous invention. We were popping in for a last-minute gift when we passed by and I happened to flop down on it out of sheer exhaustion.
I flopped… and paused… and felt… and decided to lie down. I quickly began to understand the magic that was the iComfort memory foam mattress. “Mike, you HAVE to feel this – come lie down”. He begrudgingly put down the packages and joined me on the mattress.
“ooh” he said, immediately.
Then he noticed the remote control that was situated between us, grabbed it and hit the “zero G” button which, to our surprise, elevated our heads and our knees to a perfect position so that we felt completely weightless.
“Oooh” we said in unison.
THEN, he hit the massage function button and “AHHHHHHH”… our eyes met and we both knew it was over – we were sold – this was going to be our bed. Except, then we saw the price tag.
We rationalized - we could take back all of the gifts we just bought for our families and each other and put a down payment on this bed, they would understand. Or, we could act like adults and walk away until another day when we could afford it. Dejected, we chose to act like adults.
|Naturally, I had to redecorate to compliment the new bed.|
It’s fantastic. Really, it’s memory foamtastic!

Update: When Mike forced me to leave the bed and go out into the real world for food and entertainment, I stopped into an athletic shoe store that was having a “blowout” sale and what did I find? Super-cute memory foam flip-flops! I mean, come on, who thought this up, why did they not think it up sooner, and why is the foot-bed of every shoe I own not encased in memory foam?? What a great idea.
Will the memory foamtastic-ness of this day ever stop?
