Suzan says - John - want to have some fun in the bedroom?
John magically appears pronto with a smile on his face
Suzan says - I want to do a post on the magic that happens in our bed
John says - I really think you're going too far - it's out of control what you write about
Suzan says - This could be a good post John
John says - Well I don't want any part of that post - leave me out of it - seriously Suzan
John says - Are you thinking of starting a pornography blog?
Suzan says - Puleeze - that would be the most boring blog of all
Suzan says - can you grab an end of that sheet laying there
John says - Why?
Suzan says - I need to cut it in half
John says - Why? It's a perfectly good sheet - PEOPLE DO NOT DO THIS SUZAN
Suzan says - Ah but this is where the magic starts sweetie
As in having the type of bed frame that prohibits me from buying those gorgeous bed skirts I so covet.
I don't have a box spring where the skirt would normally lay on - but need to have one ( because of lack of storage and the fact that half of my worldly belongings reside underneath it ( as in all my shoes )
Suzan says - Can you help me take the mattress off the bed?
John says -Come on Suzan, I'm watching soccer - can it wait?
Suzan says - Well you certainly came running in the room quickly the first time I asked
I simple cut the sheet in half - doubled it for some fullness - and stapled it all along the inside of the frame
Want to see another way I fake it in bed?
I love duvet covers - love love love them
I hate putting duvet covers on duvets - hate hate hate it
So this is how I fake that
I make up the bed with the duvet
then just " lay " the duvet cover on top of that
I fold the top sheet down over the duvet cover ( that's just resting on top of the duvet )
and no one would ever know that I didn't struggle for a half an hour trying to fit the duvet into the corners of the cover - ( does anyone else hate doing that as much as I do ? ) Honestly? That particular job can make me crazy - a sweating, cursing, messy, crazy person.
are women disingenuous?
yeah - some of us are when we need to be( although some much more than others )
Have a great first day of the year everyone!!!
