The coronavirus was just our latest excuse for putting off buying a new mattress. There are so many more interesting things to do, like going to doctors or washing masks.
But I was waking up with aches and pains and thought a new mattress might help. That’s why we found ourselves in a COVID-careful store talking to a nice salesperson named Darren about whether we were side-sleepers, stomach-sleepers or back-sleepers. After that we were measured by a machine of some sort. I worried that Darren would tell us we couldn’t both sleep on the same mattress anymore. But that didn’t happen.
Our new mattress was delivered a week ago. When it was unwrapped and put into place, we discovered that it came with an App that tells us how we have slept and a massage function that actually turns itself off once it thinks that we are asleep.
The next generation of mattresses will probably make breakfast.
