Great, now I have calluses…
I took the day off work today to accept delivery of the new bed and in my infinite wisdom decided that I wouldn’t pay the recommended company to assemble it, but do it myself instead. Oy vey! I opened up the instructions and the first line is Note: Two people are recommended to assemble this product safely.
Yeah, right, whatever, feh! MEN need no help.. MEN don’t even need instructions!! It’s SUPPOSED to look like that!
Now if I’d had a second person, it would have gone much more smoothly, but I managed, through the use of makeshift clamps and blocks, to do it on my own. The thought that came to mind shared via IM with some friends was, “I really wish I had someone I was fuckin’ right now… then I’d have someone with a VESTED interest in seeing this bed get put together to help me!” I even turned on the webcam to make my utter humiliation complete for the internet. And with not even a hint of a pun, I am simply not that used to spending that much time on my hands and knees anymore. Hardwood floors are not very forgiving.
Of course now I have to get rid of the old bed frame
and boxspring. I’m not sure that anyone would want just a boxspring, but the old bed frame still looks great, I just wanted a change. And it’s pretty apparent, my bedroom looks a bit bigger with the lower bed. I still have yet to test it out and I’m thinking a nap is in order very soon. I’m just happy to have a headboard I can lean against without falling through!
And of course I’ve got a great hook up line now, after all, the bed’s gotta be broken in sometime! But for now, maybe I’ll just lie down and rest my eyes a momenZZZZZZZZZ…
