What Kind of Pillow Person Are You?
Soft, Squishy, Hard, Flat, None at all or the More the Merrier?
I’m a pillow Lover! My pillow is very big and squishy. It goes out of town with me. In May when Miles had surgery we were on our way to Ft Worth and panic struck me! I realized that Randy did not grab my pillow from the bed. I say Randy because it was in the TAKE pile that I had made. I’m telling you that I actually started to cry. That is a very strange thing for me to do. It’s just that I knew I was going to be in the hospital for a week and mostly by myself because Randy was returning home and I was going to be without my pillow. I love it because it smells like my house. We had to stop in Weatherford to get me a new one. We ended up calling my mother in law to go over to my house so she could tell us the brand of my pillow.
One time before the perfect pillow that I have now I just couldn’t sleep with my previous perfect pillow because it had deflated and was just not doing it for me anymore. I had been aggravated with it for awhile but I had just been dealing with it. Well, one night I just couldn’t take it anymore. We were in bed and I was tossing and turning with the stupid thing. Finally Randy got up, put on his pants and picked up his keys. I was shocked to find out that he was leaving his warm bed and fine pillow to go buy me a new one! Can you believe that? That guy is the sweetest! He went to Wal-Mart and bought me the most expensive pillow they had there. It was a fancy pillow with a luxurious sateen cover. He brought it home and as happy and as thankful as I was…the pillow was just terrible! I tried to use it for two weeks, but the dang thing was just too firm! No squishy at all! So, now that’s his pillow. It has been for two years now and I swear it’s in the same shape as the day he bought it. Today I used it for a couple of minutes and I remembered why I didn’t like that pillow. Still hard.
Also, I have a body pillow. I started using a body pillow during one of my pregnancies. I’ve totally tried to wean myself from the body pillow a few times, but I always seem to get hooked on it again. I wish I could just get rid of it, but it’s just so comforting. Right now I have this really high thread count cover on the body pillow and my regular pillow…oh, thread count…that’s a whole other post!
So, anyway, what kind of pillow person are you? Please tell me I’m not the only one with issues.
