In the olden days of 1994 I bought myself a full sized futon. It had a cool wood frame that let it turn into a couch or sort of a lounge chair and made for very comfy sleeping in the dorm. Somewhere around 1998 I was urged to get a mattress for the avoidance of back pain. I got one that worked out alright and I just put it on top of the futon mattress and the frame. No point in scrapping the old stuff or dealing with a box spring. Needless to say I have had a very low to the ground bed for some time now. But now.. Almost 10 years later, it's time to get a new mattress. I went out to Grand Home Furnishings and picked up something that was moderately (if that can be said about a bed) priced. It had a nice deal where you get a stain protection plan etc etc.. Saturday it was delivered. And so begins the peeling back of bed layers on a journey to the dusty floor below my bed.
