Which side of the bed do you sleep on?

Yes I'm in bed... so?

In all the years we’ve been together Groover and I have always claimed the same sides of the bed… that is – he always sleeps on the left side, I get the right. Or the other way around depending on which end of the bed you’re on.

It doesn’t matter where we are. In our bed at home, on holiday, camping, it just feels wrong on the other side.

Even when he is away I still claim my side of the bed.

Until last night.

You see our bed is getting on and the mattress is noticeably sinking where we usually lie. Two grooves.

But in the middle there is an island of firm springiness and that, my friend, is where I have sleeping.

I know as soon as he returns I’ll sink back into the burrow of my side and it will feel normal again, but for now it kind of feels like I’m on holiday. Racily spreading out my wings and daring to claim the middle ground.

How about you? Do you have “a side” that you have to sleep on?

Lets look at the bed from the end of the bed – are you on the right? Or on the left?

I wonder if anyone has done a study on whether men prefer the right and women prefer the left because thinking about it… my parents are the same… dad on the left, mum on the right.

I wonder if it’s the opposite in the Northern Hemisphere?
