|Comfort Rest Organic Futon Mattress|
FutonA few weeks after I started working for this futon company, I took a weekend off to go visit my buddy in Tucson, AZ. After a six hour drive, you’d think I’d be pretty tired, right? Wrong. I was in AZ with my buddy; I wanted to see what Tuscan was all about! He HAD to show me his favorite bars, or clubs, or whatever it is they like to do in midsize Arizona cities. So as soon as I got here, we left. He showed me some of his favorite places, and I had a great time. Good music, good beer, good friends. After everything closed down, we were all ready to head back. The six hour drive was finally starting to take its toll. I was tired.
“Let me get your bed ready for you” he said. He then walked over to the couch and threw a pillow on it. “Here you go” he said, and walked back to his room.
Of course he was just kidding. He walked back to the couch and pulled out what was one of the flimsiest little hide-a-beds I’ve ever slept on and immediately said, “Don’t worry, it’s not that bad.” Usually, when people say “it’s not that bad,” it’s bad. So how was it? Truthfully, it wasn’t THAT BAD, but that didn’t make it ok either. After a long day like that, I wanted comfort. I wanted to wake up a feel, maybe even if only for a split second, that I was at home, in my own bed. Working for The Futon Shop, situations like these are my specialty. It’s a funny situation to think about, but that night, on my vacation, I was actually wishing I was back at work of all places, only instead of sleeping on this flimsy little hide-a-bed, I was on one of our own futons (I promise you I don’t sleep at work).
