Yesterday the Doctor, Tiny and I were driving in the car. I am prone to listening to the radio while driving, and an ad came on spruiking a bed sale. I wasn't listening - I pride myself on having a high ad immunity. However, sponge that he is, the Doctor piped up and asked me:
"Why do Kings have different sized beds to Queens?"
This, my friends, is a very good question. How do you explain the intricacies of bed sizing? It sounds simple, but when you go to explain it, it's not so.
"Why do Kings and Queens sleep in separate beds?"
Yes, touche my little man, why do they?
And why the heck didn't we invest in a King size bed when we fully anticipated that Tiny would come and sleep wedged in the middle of us each night, and render us to the very edges of our bed. One false move and you're on the floor.
