i got a new pillow. well, it's new to me. it's the beautiful and talented alisa's old pillow. she got a new pillow. a real life new pillow. it's got a horrific new pillow smell. but they assure me it will wear off soon. anywho, she's been having trouble with her neck. the hope is it helps. the guest bed got a new mattress. two actually. well, new to that bed. they came from garrett's bed. garrett got a new mattress too. well, it's new to him. he got a new box board thing too. a real life new box board thing. the mattress is the beautiful and talented alisa's old mattress. she got a new one. it's kinda slippery. and it doesn't have the extra firm border on the edges that keep clumsy old men from falling out. the old mattress was 10 years old. almost exactly. she slept on it one night. well, half a night. her water broke early in the morning. and she didn't get to sleep in it again for a week. poor dear. we dubbed it the labor inducing mattress. though there's not much chance of that happening again. since neither the beautiful and talented alisa nor g are pregnant.
