Bunk Beds

The possessions people have can tell you a lot about them. That is why the more time you spend with someone the more you learn about him or her just by observing their junk.

Now, for some of you it might take a while before you learn what type of bed someone has [and maybe it should take a while? Not sure…I am not really normal]. For instance, the first time I hung out with The Bouncer, he showed me around his place [seeing a guys apartment for the first time is also a scary experience…more on that later] and the tour included his bedroom [I think he had high hopes]. I don’t know why I offered this information, but upon seeing his room and noticing that he slept on two thick mattresses on the floor I offered up the little tidbit that I still sleep in bunk beds [I hear that’s normal until at least 43??].

Now, this is not such an issue for me - but when I tell other guys I randomly meet [most often not at Fuller] it is quite a shock. I have to remind myself that where they come from that would be quite a disturbance to their evening activities...if their roommate one bunk up overheard what was going on.

So I would like to take this opportunity to thank my beloved bunk beds for helping to keep me pure and steer away improper boys with impure intentions. And give a shout out to my wonderful bunkmate Liz, who has slept four feet above me these last three years. We’ve learned nothing good happens after 10; thanks for keeping me in check Lizzo.

John,

I'm sorry but this is not the best solution. If you remember college, community does not equal purity.

Ikea bunk beds. I have the same design in my room, except I have a different ladder.

do you ever switch who gets the bottom bunk and who gets the top?

my 5 year old and 3 year old nephews just got bunk beds and they love them too! they're just plain fun!

i agree w/ clj. in college we slept two bunk beds in one room, and set up a living room in the other room of our suite...all that meant was the possibility of anywhere between us 4, and up to 8 folks, sleeping in the same room. we called it a quad shack. i'm not insinuating that you and liz go for a double shack, just fyi-ing you to a larger culture of any former fratnernity guys you might meet. they could potentially see your setup, and take it not as a barrier to nighttime social interaction, but an open friendship between you and liz...

I recently came across a couple of colorful designs on more bunk beds and kids bedroom
furniture.
