I have a bad back. My husband, Mr. Night Owl, has a set of wonky knees. Together, we can be quite a pair. We used to both toss & turn every single night–trying in vain to fall asleep–but failing miserably. We’d both wake up groggy, stiff, sore, and in more pain than when we went to bed the night before.
Somewhere along the way (I’m pretty sure it was one of those nights that I couldn’t fall asleep…) I was browsing the ol’ Facebook feed and came across a viral commercial for the Purple mattress. I was entranced… this mattress seemed to combine all the sciency-techy stuff that both Mr. Night Owl and I geek out over, and the commercial was hilarious… if you haven’t seen it when you’re done reading this, you should go find the Goldilocks Purple Mattress commercial on YouTube. I kinda want to be Goldilocks’s best friend. (I also kinda want Betty White as a best friend, but I digress…) The thing that most impressed me was this test they did with raw eggs… they attached raw eggs to a glass sheet that weighed a couple hundred pounds and dropped it from several feet above the mattress onto the mattress. The eggs didn’t break. And then, to prove they were indeed raw eggs, as they lifted the glass back up, Goldilocks smashed one of them.
