Hey, that reminds me…

…so Allie at Hyperbole and a Half posted about sneaky rage cycles recently, and I immediately had a flashback to a recent event.  This was me:

*slightly torn, but nonetheless clean

The first sign of trouble –

Weird.

It appears that the elastic in the mattress pad has melted in the dryer.  I have never, in 28 years of life, heard of this problem.  Perhaps I’ve been living under a rock.  Yet I am still not ready to admit defeat.  I try changing positions; using the bed/wall/anything for leverage.
Ok, this isn’t working.  I’m breaking into a sweat.  The animals have fled to the backyard as I grasp the crinkly, decidedly non-elastic, mattress pad in my teeth in a desperate attempt to bend the universe to my will.

OK, ok.  Calm down.  Breathe in, breathe out.

Oh no, you didn’t.
Finally – VICTORY!

Kinda.

  1. This is why I mainly end up sleeping on a bare mattress in my sleeping bag.

    Yes. I am a hobo.

    I’m so jealous – I don’t even have a sleeping bag. Is there a level below hobo?

  2. You know what I love? In the third to last picture (I like to call it the “Bastard Picture”) – you look like you’re pooping!!!!!!! Love it!

    Oh my gosh, you’re right. Gross!
