The future is now

We live in a time when it is possible to order an entire mattress online from Amazon, and it arrives in a week. By UPS. Yes, I ordered a memory foam mattress for $99 from Amazon, and it came in a box that could fit easily in the backseat of a car.

Getting the box open took like, twenty minutes, and a lot of hard work and the use of tools. But the rest of the process was fairly easy: roll the compressed mattress flat on a flat, clean surface and then carefully cut the side of the plastic bag with scissors. I did, and I got to watch the thing go from something as flat as a dinner plate to an 8-inch thick twin size memory foam mattress wearing a protective covering. It's basically the same size as my current mattress once inflated.

The only thing after removing it from the bag is it has to air out for a day or two before you put the sheets on it or use it, so the chemical smell can dissipate. Something about the compression process gives it an odor when it's done decompressing, and that has to be given time to dissipate.
