the wrong side
May 26, 2009
I have heard of exactly one couple, married at least 10 years, who claim to NOT have sides of the bed. Sam and Holly, I do NOT believe you. They say they would be hard pressed to even identify the side of the bed they favor, much less always occupy. I say piffle.
Kim and I have sides, and I think they were part of the prenup. I sleep stage left, Kim sleeps stage right. Not that our bed is on a stage. Or even should be. No stages.
Hotel rooms or guest rooms are not part of the deal. The deal there is, what side does Kim want, and then I take the other side. Usually there is one.
Here’s the problem with the sides that Kim and I have agreed upon by common law: it’s the WRONG side.
Why? I’m glad you asked.
I can’t go right. How awkward and inconvenient is THAT?
