See, this is why I love going over to Ed‘s even when I shouldn’t be bloghopping:
…there is no greater political act than two men going to buy a mattress together. Forget arguments about marriage; forget marches for equal rights, if you really want to make a statement go bounce on a mattress with your partner to see if it’s firm enough. I am constantly amazed at how blasé everyone is about it. I have to say that it’s a rather nice feeling not being particularly interesting to anyone. Of course, this is D.C. not Bugtussle or Chicken Tooth, Arkansas but still. We were even enlisted by a woman who wanted us to try on mattresses with her to see which ones we liked. Just for the record, I remain committed to plush firm. Apparently I like firmness but I need a little give. Come to think of it, that sort of summarizes my entire worldview actually.
