This Bites

She canna' take any more, cap'n, she's gonna blow!

For the past 7 months, I've been sleeping on an AeroBed I picked up for (relatively) cheap at Costco.  This morning, one of the internal supports in one of the tubes failed, causing the entire left side of the bed to balloon up about a foot higher than the rest of the bed.

Great.  Looks like I have to buy a bed now, too.

The bed is semi-usable, since I can still sleep on the right side, but I don't know how much longer this bed will last.  All the air pressure seems to be leaking into the ballooned sections, so it's probably going to blow fairly soon.  I'm actually rather surprised it lasted as long as it did; I never really intended to have to use it for as long as I have and I don't think they're designed for continuous use.

Bad news always comes in threes.   First the oven quits, now my bed is on the verge of exploding, what's the third thing that will go wrong?
