The Trend Sweeping the Nation

Something is going on in the world today.  An American sensation that will soon become an international sport.  This is the coolest thing since sliced bread.   

Mattress Sliding


Oh, yes. It's real.  And it started in my house.  


A week ago, my sister M&M was sleeping on an old mattress that creaked and was hard.  After months and years of this, my parents finally decided to purchase a new mattress for her.  Little did they know that the old mattress, rather than the new, would become more highly valued than gold.  

Upon investigation, it was discovered that the old mattress of  was the perfect width to slide down our stairs.  After one round, then two, and three and four, mattress sliding became a huge hit.  Other uses for the mattress, including using the mattress as a trampoline and gymnastics mat were discovered, but none can hold a candle to the treasured mattress slide.  When our friends came over, they said:

"I've got to try this" 

and


"No way!  Really?"


It is a favorite with kids and adults alike.  Hurry for your own chance to try this amazing contraption—before the mattress is taken to the dump.
