A Way with Words

We're working on redecorating Chester's room. He was three when we moved in, so he got the room with the pink wallpaper and pink carpet. Now he's ten and needs something more suitable.

We've been visiting every furniture store in the area. He desperately needs a new chest of drawers to replace Aunt Linda's old dresser, and perhaps a new bed, since his bed used to be a guest bed in my grandparents' house when I was young. While looking, a black tubular steel bunk bed with a futon couch on the bottom instead of another bed caught his eye.

Chester said the word "futon" sounded like an atomic particle to him, like electron or proton.

Wolfie said, "If it's part bunk bed and part futon, wouldn't that make it a funkton?"

I think it absolutely would. LOL
