Last week’s poll asked whether weather (ha!) affected your choice in days for attending the Minnesota State Fair. With so many people saying “Neither”, I was sort of surprised at first but then remembered how miserable the food was this year for me and how many people here are stating more and more that they don’t do the fair because it’s just not that great. I really wish someone would up the game of the entire fair and stop trying to outdo people on food on a stick and instead try to outdo them by offering more food forward Fair fare (double ha!).
This week’s poll comes after waking up from a dream where I had one of those mattresses where you select how firm or soft you want it to be. I have been using the same mattress for too long and either I’m getting old or the mattress is and it’s starting to wear on me a bit. Aside from the high cost of mattresses, what really irks me about the process is finding something I like is never all that easy.
There are too many choices. Extra firm (read: concrete), firm, soft, pillow top, air, water, blah, blah. I prefer a pretty soft mattress and while I can sleep anywhere and on anything, I just don’t understand why anyone would ever want to buy a firm mattress except for some sort of self-discovered myth that firm mattresses are better for your back (because in my case, I wake up stiff as heck when I sleep in a hotel stupid enough to have firm mattresses).
So what about you? What sort of mattress do you prefer and why? Are you able to sleep on a mattress type that is different from yours at home? How often do you replace your mattresses and where do you usually get them from? Whatever you have to say about this one go ahead and vote over there —-> on the sidebar and then comment on below as I’d love to hear your thoughts.
