Pillow talk

Progression of love and marriage:

Year one

Nothing can stop crazy love.

Year two

When an old car accident injury starts acting up, newly wedded man buys his beautiful young wife a posh pillow that is flown across the globe. Her neck is grateful. She shows her gratitude every day.

Year three

No changes. Pillow is still with wife.

Year four

Husband is known to use pillow if she is not present in bed.

Year five

Wife buys same kind of pillow for husband out of love. And as a subtle message as to not use hers anymore. Ever.

Year six

Husband is repeatedly caught switching the pillows. His is apparently not as worn and comfy as hers. She is well annoyed. But love prevents her from snatching it under his head while he sleeps. She dreams of it though.

Year seven

Husband caught switching the pillow. Confronted. He sees that in year seven she will not take to good ole switcheroo kindly. Husband blames 4 year old kid for the switch.

I am drawing the line here. Feel free to take my side. It is comfier anyway.

    Hah! My husband steals my pillow all.the.time. And actually claims he didn’t and that it’s actually his. I know better though.

    I take your side. Really.

    But I have to admit, while Dal is away I sleep on his side of the bed. With his fancy hypo allergenic pillows. When he comes home I give it all back, bu I resent him a little.

    Didn’t you ever hear of the “7 year itch”? It all starts with a pillow fight!

    Blaming the child was a critical turn in this complex “dance of the pillows”. Don’t fall for it. If you do, he’ll find new and obnoxious ways to steal your pillow. This has to be stopped, and stopped now! Or? Suffer and settle with just dreaming about your pillow. Take action, woman! Less be forever the victim. I don’t see you as a victim.
    (LMAO. I may have gotten a little carried away here)

    I lol’d at “she shows gratitude everyday.” Guess I thought your post was headed in a different direction 😉

    here I was convince that my husband really didn’t notice when somehow our pillows get switched. I always ask for mine back and he says huh, didn’t notice. It’s all been an act? He really does covet my pillow?

    oh – totally on your side! Like I am close to assuming “pillow block” duty! LOL

    you know what’s the worse? DH often sleeps alone because of crazy shift schedule, so he cuddles up and hugs my pillow. aww, so sweet right. Wrong. Why? because nothing disturbs peaceful dreams quicker than man pit stink! I mean, I get the whole nice smell attracts thing….but holy mother of gawd when you roll over and your nose is Right In There! thanks lover.

    Giggle! – I don’t have a pillow problem but I’ve been tempted to use my pillow to block snoring (is that wrong?).

    Haha! Mark LOVES his own pillow and wants nothing to do with anyone else’s. And, quite honestly, I want nothing to do with his!

    Yeah, I don’t do well with pillow switching. I have been known to actually whip my pillow out from under my husband’s sleeping head if I notice he has taken it. You don’t mess with mama’s pillow!

    Totally awesome. Switch it back and find a way to blame the dog–if you don’t have one, get one for this reason alone??

    Blaming the kid. Of course. Tell him that doesn’t fly and to break his own pillow in.
