|Sleeping bags for bedding|
But there is no avoiding my tasks. Today I must make the bed. And because I enjoy it so much I am going to invite you along to help.
Get on those yoga clothes - you're going to need them.
The berth in the master cabin on Eolian accepts queen-sized bedding. But with a twist. All normal beds are rectangular, of course. But not ours. The bottom corners are chopped off because the hull turns in. Oh yeah, and the bottom three feet or so are under the ledge formed by the aft deck lazarettes, above. This last little detail just adds spice to the task, don't you think? And it is the reason for the yoga togs we're wearing.
|Clear the field|
Next on the agenda: The bottom sheet. You will note that we will be making the bed... while sitting on the bed! No walking around the outside, grasshopper. This just adds to the fun!
|Garters - the answer to a man's dream|
By doing this, the sheet is so tight that when you let the mattress go back down after applying the last garter, it does so kind of reluctantly. And the sheet is tight as a drum. All thanks to a knowledgeable sales clerk in Fred Meyer
OK, take a sip of beer. You were drinking a beer weren't you? The hardest part is done.
Now apply the top sheet. Tuck those bottom corners in all the way - otherwise a covers-stealing spouse might be able to sneak away your sheet.
And now, finally, the comforter. (Tuck those corners in!) Place the pillows carefully, but cheerfully on the bed to give a picture of planned casualness.
And, now you may finish that beer. Boat yoga and beer are natural partners.
