304. Own a king-size bed

My Story

Updated August 23, 2009

Have you ever slept in a king-size bed? If you’re used to a queen or full-size bed, it seems absolutely gigantic – like you could get lost. You can lie sideways and your feet won’t hang off the edge.

In reality, a king-size bed is just twice the size of a twin bed – it’s just two twin beds, side by side. But somehow it feels bigger. I once rented a small furnished apartment that came with two twin beds – with my Mom’s help, I pushed them together, covered the gap with a foamy mattress cover and wrapped the whole thing in king-size sheets and blankets. It just wasn’t the same.

I want to own the real deal.
