I often wonder which side of the bed is left and which is right. Do you determine it by facing the bed or lying in bed? Facing the bed, standing the foot, I lay on the left. Lying down in the bed, facing the ceiling, it would be the right. Right? I don't know - I'm so confused.
I like to judge it by standing at the foot of the bed. So, I sleep on the left. I created a visual for those of you who don't want to put too much thought into this whole ordeal.
See? That looks exactly like me and Husby.
I love when I wear big triangle dresses to bed. It's my favorite.
I have found that whenever we are in a hotel room, I automatically go to the left side. I know a lot of people determine what side they'll sleep on in a hotel by where the doors and windows are. I don't do that. I just go to the left instinctively.
The other night, lying there on the left side of the bed, I wondered if there was some sort of scientific data as to where most women sleep. So, I googled it. I couldn't find a definitive answer (surprise), but I read an article that said that people who sleep on the left side of the bed are generally happier people - and that there IS a "wrong" side of the bed for each person.
I was laying there smiling to myself, gloating in my super pretentious joy and happiness - laughing about how I am happier than Husby ... until I realized that maybe they were counting the left side from laying in the bed. Therefore, I would be on the right. Then I worried that maybe Husby IS happier than me and maybe I'm grumpier than I thought, and oh my goodness, I must be flat out depressed from sleeping on this side!
Dramatic. I tend to be that way.
Have you ever tried sleeping on the other side of the bed than what you typically do? It feels weird. It's like I can't do it right. My head won't turn the right way and I don't know how to fall asleep. I try to throw my left leg off the side of the bed (while on my stomach) but it doesn't go anywhere. It just keeps hitting more bed. And then I get frustrated and go back to my side. I only have attempted this when Husby works the night shift and I get all bored and try to conduct my own social experiments.
Since I'm no scientist and the closest I can get to an actual public survey is through my blog (because let's face it - I'm not going to survey the public face to face on this issue), I need you to help me out with my scientific data so I can make pie charts and write a pretend research paper while discovering a break through in sleep studies. Imagine me in a white coat and glasses with my hair pulled back into a tight bun. With a pencil between my teeth. Not in the bicycle t-shirt and oversized bright pink shorts I'm currently sporting. With a cookie between my teeth.
Which side of the bed do you sleep?
How do you determine the right & the left?
