Oh this treacherous shell that carries me from place to place deceives me.  The body is only a temporary dwelling, like a house.  But like any shelter, it eventually gives way to the years and the elements that beat upon it every day.

Still I look in the mirror and I see a fine wine.  The label is getting worn and it’s peeling around the edges and the cork’s a bit brittle, but contained within is an intoxicating and potent elixir.

That is my mantra as I check my reflection once again, moving my face right, then left, examining all the subtle angles and the almost imperceptible scar that runs most of the terrain on the left side of my face. The defective jaw and the crumbling vessel that is my body. Here’s another piece of the puzzle for you after waxing poetic for a spell.

My back is killing me because my mattress is too soft.  My bed frame is looking for a new occupant to house its current occupants as it delivers us into Morpheus’ embrace. Had to finish on a dramatic and pretentious note lest you think Freakcycle is getting all macabre and philosophical on you.

Is this the mattress of my dreams? You bet your sweet Edgar Allan Poe it is.

OFFER: Queen-sized mattress, left in the rain & wet. Would probably be fine if you left it to dry. Bring two people to pick up because it’s heavy.

We don’t have to be just a blog, you know.  We can give the people what they want. Take these two posts for instance.  Should we arrange a pickup?

WANTED:Greetings group,Children grow and it is time for my princess to have her own bed. Right now we have a Queen air mattress that has the dual sides. As soon as I am blessed with the mattress sets that I need, I will offer up what we have.

I would greatly appreciate sets that do not have any breaks in the frame or stains (such as from body fluids, people or animals) that I can not clean out completely.

If you have one size and not the other, that is okay. That brings me closer to what I need. I would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you.



OFFER: I have a used decent mattress, has a juice stain on one side and I tried to clean it out but just made it bigger. Yikes.  Its pinkish so you know it isnt body fluid.
