On a recent business trip to Myrtle Beach, I found my bed for the week to be on a sleeper sofa.
While I was grateful to not be sleeping on a bed made of broken glass, I came away with some pros and cons of the
sleeper sofa guest experience.
1. You have a bed and someone loved you enough to not make you sleep outside.
2. …that’s about it
1. We all know about the paper thin mattress, so there is no need to beat a dead horse (though oft times I would rather sleep on a bloated equine than a sleeper unit).
2. There is also no need to mention the bar that would slice you in half were it not for the paper thin mattress being a buffer.
3. The shame of feeling like a disheveled slob as you awaken to find your hosts up early making you breakfast.
4. Discovering that your hosts last used the hideaway bed for their hair, crumb, candy and popcorn kernel party.
5. Having to reorder the entire living room before the day can proceed because your possessions are smattered everywhere, along with the cushions and relocated coffee table.
