Empty-July 2009 Theme Day

"No one ever died from sleeping in an unmade bed. I have known mothers who remake the bed after their children do it because there is wrinkle in the spread or the blanket is on crooked. This is sick.” Erma Bombeck quotes (U.S. humorist, 1927-1996)

A bed empty of a sleeping body. Wonder who just left it? Our grandson is staying with us for four weeks while he is attending summer school in our neighborhood. You never would have guessed that this is how a 15-year-old boy would leave the room when he left for the day. Right?

  6. I know the look of this bed. Our son (and sister before him) could leave a bed and entire room unmade for days...probably weeks. Good post. Thanks.

  8. Our old Army beds had to be made each morning and stretched so tight that a quarter would bounce up if dropped. I have seen them stretched so tight that the ends curled up.

    Making a bed...my favorite writer...Erma.

  9. Hee! I don't believe in making the bed unless someone's going to see it! So I guess I have the mentality of a 15-year-old boy.

    Happy theme day!!

  11. Hehehe. I'd leave it that way, if I were you. He doesn't make his bed, he sleeps in wrinkled, mooshy sheets. Though I don't think 15-year-olds mind. I know I didn't when I was much younger! :)

    Fun and funny choice for theme day, Kate!

  15. Empty bed is a good choice for theme day. I wish my bed wasn't empty and I was in it taking a nap right now:)

  22. Ah to be 15 again and not feel I have to make the bed. It does make it more comfortable to get in when its smoothed out though. Fun post.
