Wifey and I have one of those beds where the mattress can be lifted up with pneumatic actuators to reveal some storage space underneath. If you’re getting a new bed, look into one of these cos it’s like having a basement under our bed to keep things we don’t use anymore, like Guitar Hero controllers, my wife’s ukulele, and music CDs.
Anyway, it usually lifts up and down really easily because of the pneumatic things, so I was a bit puzzled by why my wifey had to use her whole body weight to close it one day. I didn’t think much of it at the time, but the other day I realized why.
This is an Inception notebook that I use as my dream journal. Guess where I normally keep it? That’s right… tucked into the mattress beside my pillow.
And now, my dreams have pretty much been crushed, so to speak. The pen that I kept with it was mangled too, but I forgot to take a photo of it before I tossed it away (in case the ink started leaking).
Do you guys keep dream journals? I find that if I don’t write down my dreams the moment I wake up, I’ll have forgotten it by the time I’m on my way to work.
Actually, I have some really awesome and random stuff in there. I think I’m going to take some of those dreams and turn them into short stories for my blog. What do you guys think? Are you interested in some of the weird random stuff that goes through my head when I’m sleeping?
Sidenote: Know what else I keep tucked in the mattress when I sleep? My phone. That’s where I keep my phone as it charges. I’m so glad it wasn’t in its resting spot when wifey decided to use brute force to tame our mattress actuators.
