more participants at Jenny Matlock's Alphabet Thursday
This is the very first time I participate in this meme or theme or whatever it is, because I am a little fed up with Thursday Thirteen. After 3 years it becomes more and more difficult to find 13 things to write about and this group seems very interesting so I give it a try.
B = BED
B = BED
Have you ever thought about how important Beds are in our lives ?
For a child the bed is rather an annoying place because it is only used for sleeping and not for other amusements. Some parents even send their children to bed as a punishment and are then surprised that the child doesn't want to go to bed at night.
This changes later when the bed is used to make experiences with the opposite sex. At this time it is still a bed for one person. Later usually the bed doubles, for example after marriage or partnership. Now there is room for two and in the beginning it is used for pleasure and procreation purposes. When the results of the procreation are there the bed can be used as a Sunday battle field with the children.
When the children are too old for that, the bed becomes again a place for two. It is used for reading and mostly sleeping and occasionally for other purposes. The next step is when the bed becomes a terror place where one partner lays with open eyes helpless there and has to listen to the the loud snoring of her partner which makes her think of a motor saw. (I say her, because statistically men snore more !) The peaceful sweet face in which you looked with loving eyes is suddenly transformed into a monster mask with a big open mouth and the bed can become a place for planning a perfect murder.
After some time of good will and trials with ear plugs or stopping the snoring with more brutal means, comes the big decision, to make two beds out of one, when there is enough room as the children are gone. You move with your bed in one room and your partner with his bed in an other. Now peace is in the house again because both partners snore peacefully in their respective beds. But lots of couples don't remain alone in their beds. Now they share it with cats or dogs or both, and if they are lucky none of them snores.
