The plan was to let our visitors sleep on the air bed last night and the next few nights. So, we filled it with air, but didn’t know the thing had a slow leak. And as this article points out: An air bed with a leak is as good as no air bed.
So the guests started with a bed full of air Wednesday night. As the air started escaping one visitor went to sleep on the couch. On Thursday morning, the bed had deflated so much that the second visitor, who remained on the “air” bed, now was sleeping on the floor.
Oops. Good thing it wasn’t a water bed.
By the way, today, we bought a new air bed.
