bear grylls today; a short bed tonight

Was happy to see Bear Grylls featured on the Today show this morning - got to catch a glimpse of the new season and him crossing an Icelandic river at 40 degrees below 0 or something ridiculous like that. They should have had Matt Lauer interview him though... should not have prissy Meredith conversing with Bear... "oh my gosh, is that a worm you're eating!?!? eww!!!!"

So Steph and I were laying in bed last night (don't worry, this is a graphic as it gets), and she says to me, "Of all the blogs and myspace pages out there, I can't believe no one has ranted about this yet... why are beds so short!?" And she has brought up a fine point. 1) We're poor, so we have a full size bed; 2) I'm tall and my feet hang off the end of it; 3) No one has ranted about this before on a blog, so I shall today.

So what the crap? What is it with full size beds and them being so short? It's not just a tall person problem - Steph doesn't like having her head scrunched up against the top of the bed, so she sleeps down a ways as well, and her feet dangle too. I think they're making a bad assumption if they think that tall people and non-head-scrunchers are the only ones that sleep in queen and king size beds. Respect the financially burdened and monetarily squeezed!! We need a bed just like the rest of America, and if we are to be productive in life and earn the money we need to make our eventual bed upgrade, we need to have a good night's rest!! We cannot go through our nights with our feet dangling off the end of the bed while every day the trials of the world dangle our very lives before us!! This is a call to rise up! This is a call to support those who are forced to sleep diagonally each night while their wive's are pushed closer and closer to that dangerous edge! This is a call to wake up for the sleep we all deserve!!!

Call your senator and voice your support for the "Longer Beds For Taller People (and shorter people who want longer beds too)" bill being brought before Congress this week.

ok seriously....well, I should probably comment in segments.

Bear Grylls....I'm so freaking excited! Too bad I leave town tonight and won't see it until I'm back. Oh well, it'll be worth it! I caught up on re-runs last night, just to prepare my mind and body.

"What the crap" - you have GOT to stop with the "Christian swearing"...own, swear or don't swear. Sorry...I realize I have issues. Sometimes I yell because I'm scared.

Beds - Dude, that's like saying, "why do they make these darn compact cars so small?" Your wife is like 3.5 feet tall! She cannot complain about the length of the bed. Also, everyone knows if you sleep on your stomach and DON'T dangle your feet, they will break off from the pressure. That's science.

I guess I've never had this problem. That might explain why I have never ranted. But good job on the rant, I found it entertaining.

Full size beds, meanwhile, are perfect for bedrooms that have wide space to accommodate said bed while not minimizing the remaining space for free movements. Full size beds are ideal or best suited for people who are sharing the same one bed since it can accommodate more than one person. It is an ideal size of bed among couples since it has an ample space to move around.
