Bed.

I just have to write about a little adventure Dennis and I went on today.

We just got home from a very quick day-trip to Ikea. We got a gift card for Christmas and went to go get a new couch cover. However, we rarely make it Ikea these days and I have been dreaming about getting a bed for oh I don't know...YEARS. Before today, our bed consisted of mattress and box spring just on our bedroom floor. So we decided that today would indeed be the day to change our lives forever...on the bed front anyway. hahaha.

We get to Ikea, which was an absolute madhouse. I think the entire city of Burbank decided to refurnish their homes today. We met up with some old friends, which was awesome since I hadn't seen them in more than 2 years. We find everything we need and UH OH...the headboard doesn't fit in the car. I suggested that we just return the bed and come back and get it some other time. Dennis wouldn't have that. He decided it would be a good idea to strap the bed on top of the car...with the doors closed. Yeah. So we get on the freeway and the headboard is moving a little and Dennis has his hand out of the window just to be safe...I could only hold my hand out of the window for about 5 seconds because it was so cold. By the look on Dennis' face I could tell he was worried so we stopped at Wal-Mart to get some ratchet ties. After Dennis felt like the damn thing was finally secure we were on our way. But oh no! I had to pee. And we were hungry. We pull in to Del Taco and both have to climb out of the driver's side window. Dennis had to LIFT me out actually. If anyone saw us they would have thought we had completely lost our minds.

At least we have a bed now.

THE END.
