Mattress mambo

Apparently, I decided that someone besides me should get hurt today, and I was gonna make it happen.

Jim and I are cleaning out the upstairs bedroom so he can have a den in there. We've spent the day moving heavy stuff downstairs (because I'm such a burly girlie). The old air conditioner was a big, bulky bitch, and I figured that surely it would be the worst thing we moved today.

I hadn't counted on the Mattress of Doom.

We managed to get the thing from the second floor to the first without incident, even though I'm not what you'd call an awful lot of help. I was at least an extra pair of hands. We wrestled it out the front door, and I thought we were home free as we guided it down the steps of the porch.

And then I might have sorta guided Jim right off the steps and face first into the rosebush on the side of the house. Good thing we don't keep guns around.

He was by no means the last casualty of the Mattress of Doom (I managed to knock over a big clock and both our bikes in the garage before all was said and done), but he was certainly the only one who had to pick thorns out of his hands.

22 of you felt the overwhelming need to say somethin':

That is entirely the wrong way to get a little rough in bed.

And WHERE are the pictures of JIM'S hands, so that we might adequately feel sorry for him?

Or are you selfishly hoarding the pity of your online pals?

Closet - I knew I shoulda called you before we started all this. Woulda saved so many so much pain...

Opera gal - Why, I don't know what you mean by that.
*hitches up apron and starts on fresh batch of homemade biscuits*

Sierrabella - Oh, I think the rosebush will survive. Jim will, too, when the bleeding stops.

LadyBug - hey, if he wants sympathy, let the fucker get his own blog!

Was it one of those old mattresses that is all floppy and semi-foldable, but still really heavy? those are a bitch to move.

We have discovered that there is no good way for us to move things together. A fight is inevitable, because we both have the charming attributes of being smart and headstrong. He thinks he shouldn't have to communicate a bit, because "that's how guys move things", and I think there should be constant communication, including screaming and yelling, and that his "mindreading-kreskin" approach to moving things is crap. Match made in heaven! Sounds like you guys have a little more fun than us..... LOL!

Well, if you have your hand hurt, then shouldn't he, too? Ichabod has compared me to Inspector Clouseau when I try to help with things like that. He's way too close to right.

Moving is no bed of roses.


Or, maybe it is.

Things not to mention when roses and a matress are involved:

1. A little prick.

No one ever said Jim doesn't take time to smell the roses.

The Prince and the Thorn. Oh wait, it's supposed to be something about a princess and a pea...at least there is a mattress involved

Doctor to Jim: So, wha' happen?

Jim: She said Heave! I said Ho! And, well, she took it personally.

Nugget - the two were definitely not connected today.

Ern - that's EXACTLY what it is. The thing is about 30 years old and just needs to disappear.

Plazajen - what, you haven't tapped directly into his brain by now?

Squirl - then that make Ichabod Kato.

Mr. B - did you forget your ritalin today? (okay, I did laugh right the fuck out loud at the Heave! Ho! comment)
