Wednesday Walk ~ Sofa Sleeper Surprise!

I was a pretty good kid and never really got into trouble. Because of that, I don't have very many stories to tell of me as a kid. But I do have a few goodies of my childhood life and here is my makes me laugh to this day.

I was having a sleepover with me BFF, Colette. Whenever we had friends over my mom would let us sleep in the living room on the Sofa sleeper....that was just the most fun. Sad I know, it is the little things that can entertain a kid...isn't that the truth!

So as usual Colette and I got to sleep downstairs in the living room. In the morning, while my parents were still sleeping, we played a game with the bed. We played this game a lot unbeknownst to my dear parents. We would try to fold each other up in the bed and see how far we could get without folding it all the way. I am telling you, I am laughing as I write this.

This particular morning, I was folding my dear friend Colette. I can remember it like it was yesterday. Colette was a lot taller than I was and I just couldn't hang onto the bar. It slipped through my fingers and wahboom.... she got folded all the way into the couch. There she was a big lump in the couch. I was laughing and crying all at the same time while desperately trying to pull her out; but the whole fiasco bent the stupid bar. She was trapped and I was realizing she needed air.

I can only imagine what was going on in her head. I will have to ask her some time. hahahahah

Let me tell you, I did not want to go upstairs and tell my mom. I crept up the stairs, crawled up to the side of my mom's bed and very gently tapped her to wake her. I then began to tell her what I did and she was like "YOU DID WHAT". She came downstairs and we were able to rescue my best friend.

I don't think I got in trouble, partly because it was just too funny.

So there is my walk down memory lane today! Hahahahaha!

Jenilee at The Goodwin Family is hosting Wednesday's Walk.


  1. lol you prankster you! :) great story!

  2. Too funny! I can tell the exact same story. Did it with my life long BFF, Elizabeth. And yes sleeping on the sofa sleeper was a treat! With Joy, Carey

  3. ROTFL!!! Oh my, how funny! Yes, some of us were easily entertained back as children, huh... um, I still am. LOL! Thanks for sharing such a great memory! Hopefully your friend had no lasting effects... except laughter! =)

  4. Hahaha.... I am literally shaking and wheezing with laughter!! I laugh everytime I think of that too... And I can still hear you and Jennifer laughing and you crying and being so concerned and me trying to squeeze out the words, "I'm o-k...I can breath..." I only remember feeling totally squished and thinking...'I can do this. I can survive. It won't be long now til I get outta here...' and then I felt like an 'inflatable' as the sofa couch opened up and I puffed back out to my normal in-squished size... LOL!! That was so hilarious... I still remember your dog throwing up on me and I always think it happened that same day... But maybe I'm just recalling it wrong... But that would be an even funnier story if they happened during the same sleepover! Thanks for the memories! I cherish them always!

  5. haha! I love that your friend Colette commented also about that sleepover! Goodness...who thought of this idea first? haha

    Blessings & Aloha!
