If your summer plans already include laying in bed all day, you may be the perfect fit for the Mattress Firm’s new job opening. The company is looking for a “snoozetern” to test mattresses at their Houston, Texas headquarters by sleeping in them.
The Mattress Firm’s intern will be paid to spend 30 hours a week lounging in bed this summer. Job duties include assessing “the optimal head and foot positions” for reading, eating, binge-watching, and of course, sleeping in bed. When they’re awake, the snoozetern will also be responsible for creating written and video content for Mattress Firm’s website and social media platforms.
The ideal candidate is 18 or older, has housing and transportation access in the Houston area, knows how to use video editing software, and is “passionate about sleep and comfort.” Mattress Firm will select three to five finalists out of the applicants to create a short video pitching themselves, and from those candidates one will be picked for the job.
To apply, head to Mattress Firm’s website and submit your resume and relevant information. But you’d better hurry: Applications are due May 3, and the intern will be selected by the middle of May.

and i am a mere foot soldier with mud and a snooze button on her shield.”

“she’s just not very athletic.”
“current position: tired from the human race.”

friends take a break from recess
in the empty water table
while still waiting for some snow.
recess can be so exhausting.
“you never get tired unless you stop and take time for it.”
’twas new year’s eve at the lake house
and two of our
fellow celebratory foot soldiers
and their loyal dog were down
though they made a miraculous comeback
returning to the fray for the midnight hour
and it was something to behold.
“forgive me if I sleep until I wake up. “

glenn frey the cat not the rocker
is really upset
about the ongoing stretch of excessive heat
and has decided
to vocally protest
i have a different style
and feel that silent protests
might be much more effective.

so hot it wilts my artificial flowers”

so here it is, the last day of march
and i just found out that march is national sleep month
had i known i would have fully celebrated
each and every day
like a long fiesta with long siestas
and i will do my best to make up for it today
who am i not to honor a holiday?
