Larry and I are put in a room with one huge four-poster double bed and are promised a "Zed" bed. We have no idea what a Zed bed is, but we are sure it is preferable to the two of us sleeping together in a double bed. When the Zed bed arrives, we realize that "Zed" is the brand name and does not describe a Z-shaped cot. It is only 6 inches off the floor when opened up. I immediately begin complaining about my sore back and stiff muscles. Larry graciously offers to sleep on the Zed bed, and I quickly, and not so graciously, accept.
