Can you tell itīs raining and that spending time on my puter is my choice of activity this morning????
You wondered where the expression "to sleep tight" comes from in your post to rollerdonna. I remember my great grandmother telling me it came from the way mattresses "used to be" so I decided to see if there was truth to that. Google found the answer for me. This was the answer that came up repeatedly:
The phrase "sleep tight" originated when mattresses were set upon ropes woven through the bed frame. To remedy sagging ropes, one would use a bed key to tighten the rope.
I guess mattresses have come a long way, huh? Wonder what they would have thought of water beds 100 years ago?
