The Grinding Wheels of Justice Bunkbed
So there you are, suddenly single after fifteen years of faithful monogamy that came to a crashing halt when you discovered that the other ďpartnerĒ felt that monogamy only applied to one of you, and it wasnít her. Now, despite the fact that youíve been a hard-working sole provider for a decade and a half and you technically own half of a really nice, big, house in the burbs, you find yourself sitting in an unfurnished crappy little two-bedroom apartment little bigger than the one you first moved into straight out of college. You have an old table with one chair, a beat up couch you got from your folks back in the early 90s and which they got in the 70s, a mattress with no frame, and thank god, a tv. (But that bitch wouldnít let you have the remote, would she?) Youíre not exactly at the top of your game, but whatís worse is that you donít know where the kids will sleep.
Yea, the kids. They still love you. They want to come and see you. They did nothing wrong. But now you have nowhere (other than the couch) for them to sleep.
Sound familiar? Well then have I got a deal for you. Feast your eyes upon the Grinding Wheels of Justice Bunkbed.
You see, it will get better. The wheels of karmic justice may grind slowly, but they grind exceedingly fine. You will reconstruct your ego, and your life. Then youíll slowly start having a social life. Youíll fix some of those things about yourself you always wanted to fix but didnít have the time/energy because you were so busy being provider/husband/father. Youíll meet a brilliant and gorgeous woman who, coincidentally, happens to be much younger than you. Youíll fall in love. For her part, your ex will fall into bankruptcy, get all sorts of inappropriate tattoos, and basically ruin her own life without any help from you. But the first step to all of that is having somewhere for the kids to sleep. Thatís where the bunkbed comes in.
As you can see from the picture, itís steel framed, relatively new, comes with two mattresses, and the bottom bunk is a couch until you pull it out into a futon. So here is the scale:
If any or all of this applies to you, if you are the one who was cheated (male or female) on and you STILL had to move out and need somewhere for your kids to sleep: $75 and hell, Iíll throw in some pillows for you.
If you are a single mother or father, perhaps for other reasons, itís still a bargain at $100
If you are a young couple, working hard to make ends meet but doing pretty well, with your whole lives in front of you: $101
If you are the one who cheated in your marriage/partnership, the one who had to leave the house because you could not stop your libido from overruling your vows: $3,275. And I get to punch you in the face. In fact, I'll probably do that anyway, on the principle of the thing.
