Well, I've broken a paddle or two over the years (or, to be more specific, over the bottom). But this takes the cake.

D and I were enjoying some, um, "aggressive" sexual play the other day which was quite nice. Afterwards, I noticed that our huge (and very heavy) king-sized bed was sort of sagging. Sagging!

I decided to get to the bottom of this (no pun intended) this morning, while D is off on business travel. With great difficulty, I removed the mattress (heavy and there's no room for it off the bed), and the two box springs.

Underneath, I found the problem: All THREE metal struts were bent in the middle, and the two screws in each one had popped. We will need three new cross pieces -- but where does one buy those?

In the meantime, I sort of got it all back together but only time will tell how long this will last. I'm worried that tonight, in the middle of the night, I'll come crashing down!

Hope all your trevails are as comic as this one...
