“Leonard!” Penny shrieked as his alarm went off next to her head. “Leonard, make it stop.” She curled under the covers, covering her head.

He groaned barely opening his eyes. “It’s on your side of the bed.”

She stuck her arm out of the covers and grabbed the clock, throwing it at him. “There. Now it’s on yours.”

He sighed, turning it off before dropping it onto the floor. “You know, if we didn’t switch beds every night we wouldn’t have this problem,” he said as he put his glasses on, propping himself up on his elbow.

“No, if you woke up later we wouldn’t have this problem.”

“I actually meant the clock being on your side. We don’t really have sides. It’s just pretty much wherever we land.”

She lowered the covers, barely opening her eyes. “This is my side. I’m going back to sleep.” She rolled over and closed her eyes again.

“But you sleep on the other side in your bed. As humans, we’re creatures of habit and eventually one of us is gonna roll over and crush the other.”

“What?” she asked, rolling over again to look at him.

“Well, because we sleep in two different beds, on different sides of the bed, one of us is subconsciously gonna decide to sleep on one side and end up sleeping on top of the other.”

“Fine, I’ll just sleep on the right side on both beds.”

“Or we could eliminate a variable and choose one bed to sleep in. You know, permanently.”

Her eyes widened slightly, finally looking awake. “You… you mean you want us to live together?”

“Um… I…”

knock knock knock “Leonard!”

He sighed and looked at Penny, then at his closed door as Sheldon knocked again.

“You should get ready before he blows a fuse or something,” she mumbled as he knocked for the third knock time.

“Yeah,” he whispered. “Will you at least think about it?”

She nodded as he rolled out of bed to get dressed.

“Leonard?” she asked as he pulled his hoodie on, he glanced back at her as he opened the door. “I think we should stay at my place to eliminate that variable,” she told him pointing into the hallway.
