My Pillow

I have had the same pillow my entire life.  You may think this is gross, but here is my defense:

1 – It’s the best. pillow. ever.  I have tried to sleep on other pillows.  I have bought many, many pillows, because I believed that my pillow should enjoy a quiet retirement.  They have all failed me.  While it’s not impossible to sleep on others, it is VERY hard.  If I have the option, my pillow will come with me to hotels, friends houses, my parents house, etc.  There is no pillow superior to my own.

3 – I wash it when it gets too gross.  It comes out of the washer and dryer in perfect condition – another testimony to the perfection of this antique beauty rest.

This pillow is so great, Tim is jealous of it.  He can’t find a pillow that is better.  The other night I thought I’d be a good wife and I switched our pillows when he was out of the room to surprise him with a great night of sleep.  I’m not convinced he noticed, but I sure did.  I promptly took my pillow back as soon as he left for work in the morning.  So, judge me if you want, but I will never part with this pillow if I can help it. 

I know this picture was in the last post, but this is the pillow of reknown:


It’s so great, my brothers wanted to be around it:


Also important to note is the fashion sense we all had: headgear, DARE t-shirts, neon striped shorts, Rainbow Brite onesie jammies, and though you can’t totally see it, a Bart Simpson t-shirt.  We were often referred to as the stylin’ Burns family.  (That may not be true.)
