The difference between a rut and a grave

“The difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.” – Gerald Burrill

When Sarah and I were married, we chose sides of the bed. Sarah chose the side closest to the bathroom. I got the other side. But, Sarah insisted that we change sides every few nights. She didn’t want to be like an old married couple always sleeping on the same side. That didn’t last too long. She never slept well on my side. She kept saying something about me breathing too loud and not wanting to sleep on her right side. Now we are in our second house, and the bathroom has changed sides, but we haven’t. At less than three years of marriage, we are already an old married couple.

Good thing we flip the mattress every few months, or those ruts would start getting pretty deep.
