i heard that they take these things and refurbish them and re-sell them at places like sleepy's!

it was 2003 and i was at my old loft on east 3rd street. i had gotten a new mattress from a friend and had dragged mine out to the curb. i was a little worried about whether i was disposing of it properly and hoped i wouldn't get a ticket for putting it out on the wrong day or something. the day turned into a wild night out and even a wilder house party, as i was often incliend to throw. at 6 am, myself and three friends decided to go up to the roof to watch the sunrise. as we lay there drinking our beers and enjoying the world around us, a van pulled up. fascinated i watched as they flung open the doors, grabbed my mattress and quickly hoisted it onto a pile of other mattresses before speeding off to the next one. it was so fast the van hardly pulled to a full stop and i felt i was witnessing some weird underside of the world - a parallel universe where everything makes perfect sense, yet no sense at all.

viva new york!

Where can one get a trustworthy mattress? I've not had one for over ten years and my bones are finally starting to hurt...but I'm terrified of bedbugs.
