It Had To Happen

(Sequal to Bed Wars – Lliving Happily Ever After

Reached out in the night and grabbed the remote to level my adjustable bed so I could get out from my comfy ‘zero gravity’ position (like a hammock).

Also had to add a tiny blob of blutack to bottom centre to feel which way is up in the dark

Nothing happened on the usual count to four, when it usually whirs quietly and the various hydraulics level everything to the level start position. Pressed again. Nothing. Wrapped in my cocoon I was going nowhere!

I was about to panic. I could feel the adrenalin start to flow, bringing me fully conscious.

“Hello!”, something doesn’t feel right. It’s too familiar.

I am pressing the same-size mobile phone! “Phew!” Flood of relief negates flood of adrenalin.

Reach out for remote. Feel which way is up. The blue backlight comes on (a design flaw, should light at touch), hold the ,’flat’ button for count of floor, and am un-enveloped from my cosy nest and stand up easily. Disaster averted. Warm cuppa needed.

Go to eBay and find possible solution for $7.35. Its on its way.

I’m sure there is an app in production to totally replace the bed remote anyway. Then all I will have too do is reach for my mobile (cellphone), which is where we came in.
