“Though sleep is called our best friend, it is a friend who often keeps us waiting!” — Jules Verne.

This week’s Word Prompt on Susan and my alternate site “Weekly Prompts” is BAFFLING. It is a word open to much interpretation. For me I am baffled about the questionable quality , safety and long-term life cycle of the product.
I purchased such a mattress a few years ago from the now defunct retail outlet Sears at a one half off sale price. The huge dollar discount reduction blinded me to the fact that this item might not have been selling all that well.
The salesperson was patient and explained the many characteristics of the mattress except for one very important consideration: the mattress does conform to the shape of the person laying top it but after a small amount of time this body image is embedded in the material and makes it more of a liability than an asset.
You cannot flip the mattress because the underside is actually the base. Turning it around only compounds the problem because you are now laying upon something that is misshapen and about as cratered and inhospitable as the surface of the moon.
In my search for a comfortable and relaxing night’s sleep I compromised common consumer sense and bought the advertising hype lock, stock and barrel.
My goal now is to purchase a new and “normal” mattress that offers a firm and comfortable place to sleep.
If you are considering purchasing such a mattress I would advise against it.
Check out your options for a mattress that is less high tech but more in line with getting the good night’s rest you deserve. – gc
