About Sofa Beds
What is the ugliest piece of furniture you can buy? A sofa bed! What is the most uncomfortable sofa? A sofa bed! What is the most uncomfortable bed? A sofa bed! What is the piece of furniture most hazardous to your health? A sofa bed! What is the most difficult piece of furniture to dispose of? A sofa bed! Given the foregoing why has our household been graced by three different sofa beds? Why did we have two sofa beds at the same time in an apartment? Why did I venture to single-handedly move a sofa bed from one floor to another and consequently adopt a chiropractor as a lifelong friend? To adequately answer these questions would require the services of Tony Soprano’s Dr. Melfi. On the other hand was it just to impress our young granddaughters so that during their visits we could announce that that they were going to sleep in a magic bed? "Abracadabra , Grandpa is going to turn this sofa into a bed"! I must admit they were impressed but our granddaughters are young ladies now and have relegated magic beds to childhood memories. Our sofa bed reigns in our living room and thwarts every attempt to come up with an attractive furniture arrangement. It hasn’t exposed its inner workings in years. So why do we still have a sofa bed? I guess I’m just too cheap to have it moved out and replaced with a real sofa! That’s what Dr. Melfi would say.
