1. What do you consider a bad boy?

2. Do you change your bedding for the different seasons?

3. Do you/have you ever smoked cigarettes?

Can you say the same for frat boys?

Are you claiming that spring spends time in the bedrooms of frat houses?  Surprised

To me it would be, my bedroom is my quiet place, a place to read and relax, other than sleeping.

Is your bedroom away from the rest of your house? On a different level of the house?

Umm, yeah. So do I.   But I do like to lay on my bed and watch tv or read sometimes.  sometimes I'm on the couch in the living room. Sometimes I'm in the chair in my bedroom. Sometimes I'm on the patio furniture.  Sometimes I'm laying on my bed (espeically when there are extra kids at my house who have taken over the living room.)

I blame my course for that then, Lol.  A lot of discourses required us to compare old art to modern art.  Sadly, Rockwell was never a subject I got to compare to old art but Duane Hanson was.  Now that's weird stuff!

<<But isn't that an epic PITA? I have a chair in my room that I tend to use for reading and napping over the bed, but I just can't imagine being afraid to flop on my bed for fear of messing something up. Are your kids' beds the same way? >>

Perhaps my memory is hazy, but I really don't remember the boys' rooms being awful. Now the common living areas on the morning after a party? AWFUL. But their rooms? They really weren't bad.

I think your "frat boy" experience may be way different than my "I'm poor and can barely afford rent" college-boy experience.   I did see more than a handful of mattresses on floor or on just the metal frame that comes with the box springs.

For some reason my husband likes to read lying down.  So he usually goes to the bedroom to read.  He actually spends quite a bit of time in there just lounging around.  I think he does it for some peace and quiet.  He can kick all the animals and kids out and shut the door, which he really can't do in the den and lving room.

If we lay down, we fall asleep. lol. Even when my dh naps he naps on the couch.

I do, it's one of my favorite quiet places to read and/or talk on the phone, same for the rest of my family members, in their own beds of course.  Our beds are super comfy.  :)
