A Man’s Question: Why The Seventeen Pillows?
So the boy feels that he hasn’t had a say in a while. He wants to know about pillows…. (I’m just glad he didn’t ask why the seventy pairs of shoes!) Here is what he has to say, enjoy! Cait x
Ladies, has your man ever asked you why there are seventeen pillows on your bed?
We understand your need to collect pretty things, we do. But why so many pillows?
Why would you ever need a pillow covered in gold sequins! What on earth is the purpose of that?
Of course as a man, we only need one pillow. It’s for our head. When we sleep.
We can possibly understand a second pillow, for those times when you bring us breakfast in bed, for when we could use a little more lumber support sitting up with a coffee in one hand and the newspaper in the other. That would make some sense.
So where is the practical need for the other fifteen?
Apparently they have names. Side pillow, bolster pillow, californian pillow, body pillow, throw pillow, square pillow, triangle pillow, circle pillow.
But still, WHY???
I mean, have you considered the amount of time it takes to arrange all those pillows every day? After you get up and make the bed, then that night when you turn in for the night. Those 22-odd seconds could be better spent don’t you think? By the end of the year you would have seriously wasted a good portion of a year (8,000 seconds by my count) – I know that if I gave Cait a few thousand more seconds it would probably be spent with a copy of Harpers Bazaar or perhaps another episode of someone self-indulgent taking over New York….
Our bedroom actually struggles at night when we have to find space to put all the pillows…..space is at a premium you know…. what with all her shoes….
But in saying all this, I shouldn’t be complaining…. we only have eight pillows on our bed.
And honey that isn’t an excuse to go buy the other nine ok!!
So what do you think girls? Do we have too many pillows on our beds? Have we read too many InsideOut Magazines? (for the record, I love all my pillows! Cx)
