The trail of broken pillows.

It occurred to me last night that Mr S. and I have way more conversations about pillows than should be permitted by law. It's pretty ridiculous actually. More than any man should have to put up with in fact. He's a saint, but I'm guessing some of you might have already suspected as much. Putting up with me and all.

Anyway... any rearranging of the pillow cases can send me into a complete tailspin.

Me - Mr S! Are you on my pillow?

Him - NO. This is my pillow.

Me - Are you sure? I don't want you squashing my pillow.

On and on and on. Even as I type this - it sounds really crazy.

You see, as an insomniac - pillows take on a great deal of importance. They can not be too flat, or too.... not flat. And flattening one of my good pillows. Well - it's a tragedy.

Why? Because buying new pillows doesn't always solve the problem. I try them in the store, yet I still have a corner filled with pillows that once I got them home sucked for some reason. I hope they will magically transform shape and become "one of the good ones". But they don't. Toss and turn all night, then get back to me on the crazy part. You become really attached to a good pillow is all I'm sayin'.

At least I can eventually offload them onto Mr S. Who I think has never officially forgiven me for yanking a pillow out from under his head in the dead of sleep. Not just taking the pillow, but flat out yank - head hit the mattress yanking. When he told me the next day I thought it was pretty funny. Though unintentional. But, this just shows you the level of pillow problems that exist.

Why am I telling you this? Because.


  1. I find this funny but only becaue I sleep on like 8 regular pillows and one of those long body pillows, but they're all flat cause I don't like the fluffy ones. :-)

  2. You are not alone. Sarge threw out my favorite pillow because it was so old, and I have never been able to find a replacement. Sarge and Piko deGallo have this pillow from Costco that is memory foam on one side and down on the other. It is quite fantastic. Sarge got his first and Piko kept trying to steal it. So she got one for Christmas a couple of years ago. It was strange, it was the only thing she asked for.

  3. why were you telling us this? because you are going to tell more about you :) thank you for nice story :)

  4. I've been trying to share more. It isn't easy for me. I'm a bit shy. I will work harder. ;)

    Thanks for your compliment.
