Oh also!

So when I walked in to pay for the bed yesterday, I felt a little bad for the saleskid, cause he saw a potential commission, and I was there to pay for something already sold. Sad trombone.

“Hi there,” he said.

“Good morning,” my brother Justin said. It was about 6PM.

The kid was a bit flustered but recovered quickly. “How can I help?”

I pointed at the sales counter. “I’m actually just here to..”

Saleskid dropped the mask. “Your hair is really cool.”


He noticed my Deadpool teeshirt. “Your SHIRT is cool!”

“Thanks again!”

“Sorry, were you headed to the bathroom?” It was the same direction as the counter.

“No, I’m here to pay for a bed. My friend Jen set it up for me.”

Of course he knew her. She’s awesome. I told him my name. “Even your NAME is really cool.”

“I’m not sure if you noticed, but um, I’m pretty cool all around,” I grinned. We joked about the little plushy dust mite on the counter, he rang me up, Justin and I got donuts on the way home. And today I figured out that Jen had saved me $2400.


Jen is cool. You guys are cool.

The end.

  1. Hi to you…as a PALS I’ve been checking out your website for a while. You’ve given me many chuckles, a tear or two with the FU struggles of ALS and also admiration for your spunk and drive to live life. I had a question about your new bed. My wife and I just finished a remodel and we have a regular king bed. I too am having trouble raising my head and getting out of bed. I’m not ready for the dreaded hospital bed 🙂 I saw Debbie, the OT, today and she said to be sure the mattress is firm enough. I thought of your timely post and thought I might ask a few questions if you don’t mind. Would you mind emailing me and maybe we can chat? Thank you so much!
