[100] 100-4

(I have to give greg partial credit for the story idea)

Sleeping poorly, Paul decided to buy a new mattress, one of those
inflatable sleep number beds.

At sleep number 35, he had a full night's sleep, but awoke groggily.
At 55: seven hours and still needed coffee.
At 75: six hours and a splash of water and he was awake.
At 95: four hours and he was singing in the shower.

He felt healthy, chipper, and had more hours in the day.

More must be better, so at 105: three hours and he started morning jogs.
And at 115, during his hour sleep, he flopped, and pop!

Deflated, 0, R.I.P.
