Jerry is a friend of mine who recently became a widower at the age of 76 after being married for 53 years. We were chatting away on the phone and he says I’ve got a question for you. It went something like this:
Jerry: What size bed do you have?
Jerry: Where do you sleep on the bed? Middle or side?
Jerry: How often do you change the sheets?
Me: Every 2 weeks
Jerry: Do you think it would be okay if you slept two weeks one one side of the bed, and then two more weeks on the other side before cleaning the sheets?
Me: I guess I never thought about it. (I’m cracking up and so is he)
Jerry: I was just looking over at the other side of the bed and the whole side hasn’t been touched and everything is in order.
Me: I’d probably knock myself out by running into the wall each night heading to the bathroom if I slept on the other side. (I’m still cracking up..)
Jerry: I’m going to ask a few other single people and see what they think.
Me: Sounds like a plan I’d love to hear what they say. I’ll ask around also.
So my little WordPress tribe what are your thoughts? Isn’t it always interesting how others come up with questions you never even thought about?
*** At the end of the phone call after talking about other things he’s discovered he jokes maybe we should write a book on tips of being single 😊. It is sad, but this was just a keep it light conversation as he works through all this…
