A Rude Awakening

Last night I woke up at around 4:00 am. After a few moments of disorientation I noticed that my pillow was wet. I soon realized that the sheet, the blanket and my pyjamas were wet, too. I stood up, had a look at the bed and figured out what had happened: a corner weld on my side of our water bed had developed a leak. Just the thing you need in the middle of the night. 🙁

My wife had woken up in the meantime. She helped me to hang up the wet laundry and patched the leak. As the water bed itself still needed to dry we spent the rest of the night in the guest room. It took us both a while to go to sleep again. Unsurprisingly we were both dead tired when the alarm went off in the morning.
