Two weekends ago, Marla (from Whirled News Tonight) had a daylong 30th birthday party/day of weird surprise "experiences" planned by her husband.

She started out her morning blindfolded and driven out to IKEA where she had breakfast in a display bed.

Marla: I decided it was gonna happen in the round bed, cause the display for that thing is my dream room. It's got that IKEA thing of being perfectly, unrealistically organized and color coordinated. You start to think, wow, the person who lives in this room has really got their shit together.

I didn't go to this part of the festivities, partly because I didn't want to get up so early, but also because the thought of running afoul of store security fills me with anxiety. Apparently, it shouldn't have.

Marla: We were so surprised no one noticed. I lingered for at least 10, 15 minutes. We were a little disappointed we weren't kicked out.

Thanks to Forsythe for letting me use this picture he took.

Marla: I was in the IKEA bed and my husband places the tupperware container of scrambled eggs and toast -- which I was told to cook that morning, no explanation given -- on a tray, and brings me "breakfast in bed."
Me: Wait... you had to make your own breakfast for the breakfast in bed?
Marla: Yeah! I had to make it myself! And I really half-assed it cause I didn't know who it was for.
