Chapter 2 – (Dreams…)

31 Aug

Coming for you

Lining you up

In organized patterns

Rubber bands keep your arms

Tight against your body

Spinning you are

Fast as your feet can turn

Russian women dance

She flies

Tick? Tick?

As free as the bird

Who leads the flock

Friendly revolution

Hold back no reserves

Encircled she prays

As a dying man

In his last days

Return to harsh embrace

Stretching, pulling

A carnival?

There are no children laughing here

A punishment?

Didn’t seem cruel or unjust to me

Made in the U.S.A. – First Blush

3 Feb

So my first big purchase for the apartment other than the used couch from Finland is a bed. I go to IKEA, several random mattress slingers and finally settle on using Sam’s Club online because they say they will deliver for no extra charge to my third floor apartment while everyone else wants at least $65 and some as high as $110.

I actually struggle over the descriptions because one sounds much nicer than the other and is less expensive but in the end I go with the one that says, MADE IN THE USA all over it and touts its “natural-based ingredients which support environmental sustainability”.

Side note: You can’t make this chit up.
Sounds great, right?
Anywho, I get the box today and I think I must have gotten someone else’s order because it clearly says MADE IN CHINA on the box. So I go back to the website and double check. Yes, I ordered the Aerus – as advertised Made in USA. NOT the Night Therapy mattress as advertised Made in China.
Blah, blah, blah. Blah, Blah, blah. A couple paragraphs later and I see the catch. “Memory Foam Made in the USA. Produced using the most environmentally-friendly process in North America.”

The box also says……….you guessed it – Aerus by Night Therapy.

Alternative sleeping solutions

What's a red-blooded gal who wants to buy American supposed to do?
