Now this is a phrase that really speaks to me. According to the Urban Dictionary, “bed gravity” is defined as: “an irresistible force that draws you back to bed, or toward any mattress, couch, or other soft horizontal surface. Usually stronger when one or more persons are already on said furniture.”
Mom: Time to get up for school!
Son: Must! Fight! Bed gravity! ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
This phenomenon is basically the same thing as the made-up disorder “dysania,” which was discussed in a previous post. However, the phrase “bed gravity” is much better because it’s scientifically accurate. The main reason people have trouble getting out of bed in the morning, or off the couch, etc., is due to Isaac Newton’s First Law of Motion, which states that an object at rest tends to stay at rest.
It’s a freakin’ law of freakin’ physics, dude. And we’re powerless to overcome it.
Bye for now…
